 Talk about the future, plan for the future

  Information for Attorneys - Enduring Power of Attorney

In Queensland people have the option of creating a legal document called an Enduring Power of Attorney to nominate others to act on their behalf and make decisions for them if they are unable.  These decisions may include personal, health or financial decisions, which may be simple or complex.

The role of Attorney can be confusing.  It is recognised there has been a lack of education specifically developed to assist Attorneys to understand their legal duties and responsibilities.

To make it easier for Attorneys to act appropriately in their role as decision maker, ADA Australia with the support of the Queensland government have created resources.

ADA Australia in consultation with a broad range of stakeholders and funding from the Queensland Government’s Department of Justice and Attorney General. The resources can assist Attorneys to understand the EPOA document, any terms and when and how to make decisions for another.  It can also help support those who may be considering agreeing to the role of becoming someone’s Attorney, to understand more about the role and what will be required of them should the EPOA become active.

The Ageing Diversely videos have created a means to generate conversations about ‘planning for the future’ for culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The videos produced in English, Mandarin, Italian and Amharic are currently viewable via the UnitingCare Community YouTube page. The Auslan videos are available via the Deaf Services Queensland YouTube page. We are very happy for you to utilise the videos however you wish, including the English version.

Thank you to the Public Trustee, The Queensland Government, CO.AS.IT, Cathay Community Association, Jeta Gardens and the many other services who supported the Conversation Café video series. A particular thankyou to Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast who also provided a magnificent filming location.
