Any Advance Care Directive Form properly filled out and witnessed (in line with the requirements of the Advance Care Directive Act 2013) is still legally valid
An Advance Care Directive cannot be used to make financial decisions. An Enduring Power of Attorney should be used for financial decisions.
The new Advance Care Directives replaces the existing Enduring Power of Guardianship, Medical Power of Attorney and Anticipatory Direction with a single form.
The DIY Kit includes the Advance Care Directive Form and a step-by-step guide that gives you everything you need to know to complete your own Advance Care Directive Form.
