Palazzolo & Associates can come to you to prepare an Enduring Guardian.
You can allow loved ones the authority to make decisions about your care, personal services, where you are to live and so on in case something unexpected happens and you can no longer make those decisions on your own behalf.
An enduring Guardian or Guardianship is a legal document that appoints a person to make lifestyle decision on your behalf. This can include what medical care you will receive, where you are to live and what personal services you will receive.
This document only comes into effect after the donor loses the capacity to make their own decisions.
We will take special care in assessing whether the person has mental capacity to sign the document and if we are not satisfied, we will be unable to proceed without a doctor certifying that the person is of sound mind.
