In the event you lose mental capacity (e.g. dementia, coma etc.) an Advance Care Directive (ACD) enables your Substitute Decision Maker (SDM) to deal with all “life issues”.
Advance Care Directive Example
- authorising medical treatment
- the switching “off” or keeping “on” life support systems
- arranging nursing homes
- food and dietary requirements
- religious practices etc.
Advance Care Directive Preparation
An ACD is often prepared at the same time as preparing a Will and an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA).
