Enduring Power of Attorney: Guardianship

This service is available across Greece

Who would find this Service useful?

  • In Greece, the establishment of an enduring power of attorney for elderly relatives with dementia is governed by Articles 1666 to 1688 of the Greek Civil Code. 
  • The legal framework allows for the appointment of guardians (legal assistants) by the District Family Court for various fields, ranging from financial management to personal welfare. 
  • These guardianships can be limited or full, depending on the individual's needs. The court considers mental illness, cognitive impairment, prodigality, or substance addiction when deciding on guardianship. 
  • If no suitable individual is available, organizations or social services may be appointed. This legal service in Greece ensures the protection and management of personal and financial affairs for elderly individuals with diminished capacity.
