Enduring Guardianship

Enduring guardianship services in Jesmond

Why do I need enduring guardianship?

Enduring guardianships are essential documents for people moving into later life. These documents allow you to nominate specific individuals to make health decisions on your behalf if you aren’t in a position to do so yourself. 

Prepare for the worst

While you may be in perfect health now, it’s always best to prepare for the unexpected. By choosing who would make these important decisions if you were unable to do so – for example, if you were to fall into a coma following an accident – you have the peace of mind of knowing you’re always in good hands. 

It’s easier than you might think

Should anything happen that would render you on life support, it’s vital to have your wishes made clear. If you’re against the idea of being kept on life support, then an enduring guardianship document should be drawn up as soon as possible. This will allow you to outline exactly what decisions you would like to be made in certain scenarios.

Please note: if you have an accident and are in a coma or not able to make a decision, it is too late to have either of these documents drawn up and the court can appoint someone else to manage your affairs.
