Wife trapped in a retirement home?wa medical poa wa medical power of attorney Western Australia Medical POA wa medical power of attorney Western Australia Medical Power of Attorney WA power of guardianship

Our client’s wife was trapped in a high-end aged care facility. She got Alzheimer’s Disease. Our client wanted to get her out. The retirement home said he had no right to touch or move a person. Not even a wife. He rang me in tears. I told him to go home and get the South Australian advanced care directive. He got it. He took it to the Retirement Home and he got his wife out.

Escape a bad hospital with an Enduring Power of Guardianship

Our client’s wife was in a hospital. The doctors were ‘behaving like Gods, not doctors’. Our client presented the South Australian advanced care directive. And he moved her to another hospital. There was nothing the doctors could do.

What can an Enduring Power of Guardianship do?wa medical poa wa medical power of attorney Western Australia Medical POA wa medical power of attorney Western Australia Medical Power of Attorney WA power of guardianship

The South Australian advanced care directive allows you to appoint loved ones. If you lose mental capacity then they decide your:

  • personal lifestyle
  • where you live
  • medical treatment

But only if you can’t make decisions yourself.

A South Australian advanced care directive is also called:

  • South AustralianEnduring Power of Guardianship
  • South AustralianPower of Guardianship
  • South Australian Enduring Guardianship
  • South AustralianMedical Enduring POA

What decisions can a South Australian enduring guardian make?

With an Enduring Power of Guardianship a South Australian enduring guardian makes decisions about:

  1. where you live, whether permanently or temporarily
  2. who you will live with
  3. whether you work
  4. consent to medical & dental treatment
  5. protect life or ‘flick the switch when a vegetable’
