Appropriately planning for your future medical care can assist in ensuring that the medical treatment you would like (or not like) to receive in various circumstances is provided to you when you are incapable of making these important decisions for yourself.
It is no longer possible to grant an enduring power of attorney (medical treatment) to authorise a person to make medical decisions on your behalf. Instead, there are various legal avenues available to plan for your care including:
- making an advanced care directive;
- appointing a medical treatment decision maker or support person;
- making an instructional or values directive.
