Representation Agreements

Information On Representation Agreements

One that deals with property and personal care and one that deals with personal care only. In many situations, only a Health Care Representation Agreement is signed and this is used along with a Power of Attorney to manage the donor’s personal care and property matters.

Health care agreements give family and caregivers guidance on how the donor wants to be cared for and sets out the types of decisions the Representative can make (such as consenting to surgery, making care arrangements or refusing treatment) and usually includes a Living Will (which sets out end-of-life wishes). A health care agreement can be revoked or changed at any time while a person still has capacity.

Everyone’s situation is different, so professional advice should be sought as to what types of planning documents are most appropriate.
