An Enduring Power of Attorney document (EPA) appoints someone to do just this.

Without an EPA, whoever might have thought they would be in this position, may face great difficulty dealing with doctors and hospitals, banks, etc., and may even need to go to a Guardianship Tribunal to be appointed as your guardian โ€“ which just adds further stress at an already stressful time.

An EPA can also provide specific directions to an attorney, to reflect your wishes about your financial, personal and medical care needs โ€“ for example, not to sell your house, to allow gifts or benefits to your spouse or children, that you donโ€™t wish to go into a care facility, or what types of treatment you do/donโ€™t want to receive (which can also be documented through an Advance Care Plan or Health Direction).

I love to travel and have already made it to 18 countries across Europe and Asia. My personal goal is to travel to every continent, including Antarctica. My favourite destination so far is Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, where I skydived over the Swiss Alps!

Outside of the law and travel, I am a qualified lifeguard and swimming instructor, and have taught kids from as young as six months to adults.

I am a passionate environmentalist and animal lover. I advocate for kinder lawyering and living through my volunteer work at local sanctuaries and community organisations. I am an unashamed dance mum extraordinaire to my two lively daughters and wife to my ever so supportive and husband. I adore cats, and have 3 โ€“ Ruby, Cleo and Kimba, who are very popular onย Instagram! You can check them out here.
