Duties and Responsibilities of an Enduring Guardian
Your enduring guardian can make decisions about your health care and accommodation requirements. This includes medical treatment, whether you live in your own home or a nursing facility, who can visit you or what personal services you receive, for example home support or meals on wheels.
Your guardian is responsible for:
acting in accordance with any conditions or wishes expressed by you in the instrument of appointment;
acting in your best interests and promoting your dignity;
ensuring that you retain as much freedom of action and decision making as is possible; and
- considering your wishes before making decisions for you.
