Powers of Attorney

There are usually two documents used in Queensland to appoint others to make certain decisions on your behalf:

3.2 Enduring Power of Attorney  (click through)

3.3 Advance Health Directive (click through)

An Enduring Power of Attorney continues in the event that you can’t manage your affairs and covers both financial and personal or health decisions. If you have an accident or illness and cannot make decisions for yourself, the enduring power of attorney gives decision making power to the person you have nominated, so it is an important document no matter your age.

The kinds of decisions your attorney can make include:-

  • financial attorney: paying bills, dealing with Centrelink, taxation, investments, legal matters and property management
  • personal/health attorney: your living arrangements, your health care, your diet and dress

Advance Health Directives

In Queensland, Advance Health Directives help you plan what medical treatment or health care you would wish to have in the event that you are too ill to make those kinds of decisions for yourself.  You can specify exactly what treatment is acceptable to you or you can appoint an attorney you trust to make those kinds of decisions on your behalf. You are also able to make any special information known to medical staff through this document, such as allergies to medication or religious beliefs that impact upon the types of treatments acceptable to you.

Without an Advance Health Directive in place there is no legal means to make your wishes known about when to stop or withhold life-sustaining measures, for example CPR to keep your heart beating, assisted ventilation to keep you breathing and being fed through a tube.

At Fuss Law we can tailor your Enduring Power of Attorney and your Advance Health Directive for your specific circumstances.
