What is Power of Attorney

Power of attorney is about letting someone make decisions for you when you are not able to because of a physical or mental impairment or disorder, even if it is short or medium term.   

The person that serves as power of attorney may assist with the following; 

  • Helping you with money matters 
  • Assisting you with your living situation 
  • Organising health care 
  • If you don’t appoint someone, you may not be able to choose who is in charge 

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal may need to appoint an administrator assist you.
