An enduring power of attorney
An enduring power of attorney is a written legal document that allows a person (the donor) to choose someone to act on their behalf in the future in the event that they become mentally incapacitated. An enduring power of attorney only operates when the person is incapable of making their own decisions and has been registered. The document will lie dormant until that point in the future. Up until then they are free to make all their own decisions.
