A power of attorney is a document that gives a person (called either the donnee, attorney or appointee) the power to act on behalf of the person or company who gives the power (called the donor, principal or appointor). The major Act that regulates general and enduring powers of attorney in South Australia is the Powers of Attorney and Agency Act 1984 (SA).
Appointing a person as an attorney is giving them the authority to deal with the donor’s financial affairs . It does not give the attorney the authority to deal with other personal areas of the donor’s life, such as health care, residential and accommodation arrangements, and lifestyle matters. That is a different document called an Advanced Care Directive
