EXPLANATORY NOTES:

Advance Health Directive (AHD)

Every competent adult has the legal right to accept or refuse any recommended health care. This is relatively easy when people are well and can speak for themselves. Unfortunately, during severe illness people are often unconscious or otherwise unable to communicate their wishes—at the very time when many critical decisions need to be made. By completing an Advance Health Directive, you can make your wishes known before this happens.

Enduring Power Of Attorney (EPA)

For the person appointing an attorney… by completing this EPA document, you can give a person of your choice the power to take decisions on your behalf about:

  • Personal/Health matters and/or
  • Financial matters.

An EPA explains, in question-and-answer form, what you need to know to complete the document properly. Because you are the person principally concerned, you are referred to as ‘the principal’.

What is enduring power of attorney?

Power of attorney is the legal power to make decisions on someone else’s behalf. ‘Enduring’ simply means that the power continues even if the person giving it loses the (testamentary) capacity to make decisions
