Who will manage your affairs as you age?
If you are thinking about accessing aged care, you may want to think about who will manage your affairs as you age.
You may choose to give someone you know and trust powers to make decisions for you. More information about the options available can be found at MyAgedCare.
What is Guardianship?
In the event that you are unable to make decisions about your personal affairs, a Guardian may be appointed by a State or Territory Government to act on your behalf.
A Guardian is generally appointed when, after your health professional and/or friends or family present evidence before a board or tribunal, it is found that without an appointed Guardian to manage your personal affairs, you pose a significant personal risk to yourself.
