New website to help us plan for later life

Planning Ahead Tools

28 Feb 2012

The NSW Government has launched a new website providing up-to-date information and resources about wills, powers of attorney, enduring guardianship and advance care planning.

The Planning Ahead Tools website has been specifically designed for everyone from service providers, legal and health professionals to carers, older Australians and younger people who need to consider what should happen if they were no longer able to make decisions for themselves.

It contains advice, resources, videos and interactive tools to help people make decisions about health, welfare, finances and medical treatment.

Encouraging people to plan ahead is an important way to promote positive ageing, prevent legal problems and empower people to manage their own futures.

The Planning Ahead Tools website was jointly launched by the Minister for Ageing Andrew Constance and NSW Attorney General Greg Smith SC at Parliament House on 14 February 2012. The site is an initiative of the Planning for Later Life forum, and has been jointly sponsored by Ageing, Disability and Home Care and NSW Trustee and Guardian.

You can visit the Planning Ahead Tools website at www.planningaheadtools.com.au
