One of the most common reasons people come to see us at Disability Law Queensland is to find out about their legal right to make a decision on behalf of a family member with an intellectual impairment.
In this free, six part-series, you will learn about the different legal options available to you if you need to make a decision on behalf of an adult who may not always have the ability to make one for themselves. Once you have signed up, you will receive a weekly email on one of the below topics for six weeks.
- Week 1: Introduction
- Week 2: Enduring Powers of Attorney
- Week 3: Capacity
- Week 4: Informal Decision Making
- Week 5: Guardianship and Administration
- Week 6: Obtaining an Order
By the end of the series you will understand how you can continue to make decisions for an adult who has impaired decision-making capacity and how to plan for their future, so that if you are unable to assist with decision-making any longer, there are other arrangements in place.
