As a lawyer worker involved with elder law I find my self in the position of advising my clients in appointing a medical decision maker and drawing up an advance care plan. Unfortunately, in Victoria, I am not able to witness this part of the process. There is concern that many of our older clients will not proceed to complete the plan and their wishes will go unrecorded and perhaps even unsaid. It would be far more effective if when reviewing the Will and drawing up POAs I am also in a position to complete the necessary suite of legal instruments that ensure the future needs of my clients are covered.
