Decide on guardianship yourself

Do you want to avoid that an arbitrary guardian is appointed in the event you become incapable of judgment? Then you should draw up a living will.

The answer in detail

Notes on living wills

Without a living will, you tacitly agree to a guardian being appointed if you become incapable of judgment. If you want to decide yourself who can make decisions on your behalf if you become incapable of judgment, you should draw up a living will in which you appoint one or more natural persons or legal entities to carry out certain tasks.

The appointed guardianship allows for officially ordered, legal representation of a person of majority age who is incapable of judgment and thus incapacitated. This is the case, for example, for an elderly person who can no longer think clearly because of senility.

Our sample text will help you draw up your personal living will.
