Your chosen medical decision-makers will generally be able to decide where you live, what types of healthcare and services you receive, and what types of medical treatment you receive.
The exception to this is our Victorian document which only allows the guardian to make medical treatment decisions for you (not lifestyle).
The role of your nominated medical guardian substitute/s is to act in circumstances where none of the Primary Guardians are able to.
At Safewill, the Powers of Attorney you create will only come into effect if you lose your decision-making capacity. In each state, a guardian is subject to certain rules which say they should be acting in the Principal’s best interests at all times.
