Who will take care of everything if something happens to you? Who will inherit your property? Who will take care of your children? Who will look after your finances and medical needs? Fortunately, planning ahead for yourself and the ones you love is easier than you think.
The NSW Government launched a campaign in October 2013 urging the community to prepare for incapacity late in life.
The Planning Ahead Tools website, funded by NSW Trustee and Guardian and the NSW Office for Ageing (Department of Family and Community Services), contains information on all aspects of planning ahead, including Advance Care Planning, Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Enduring Guardianship.
Interactive tools are a feature of the website, allowing individuals to prepare their future plans and to tailor information for their needs.
