Benefits of an EPG

Making an Enduring Power of Guardianship enables the appointor to:

  • choose the person or people who will make decisions on their behalf about personal, lifestyle and treatment matters in the event they lose the ability to make such decisions themselves
  • safeguard their interests if they are no longer able to make reasoned decisions for themselves
  • determine the scope of decision-making authority their enduring guardian will have
  • maintain decision-making authority over some aspects of their life while passing on authority for other more complex decisions. This would be of significant benefit to an appointor who had a condition that developed over an extended period of time.
