An Enduring Guardian is a person you appoint to make decisions for you about your lifestyle (such as the medical treatment you receive, or where you live, or what healthcare services you receive) if you become incapable of making your own decisions. You choose what, and how, your health-related decisions are to be carried out. Appointments of Enduring Guardians are legal documents specifying these decisions. The Guardianship ends when you die, or you revoke it. It is a backup document just in case you lose the capacity to make medical decisions yourself.
Enrights Solicitors is experienced in advising clients wishing to set up Powers of Attorney or Enduring Guardians. We can also keep these documents safe for you in our secure ‘strong room’ located at our offices.
