If he signed another POA, that is likely still legal. I'd check with an elder law attorney or estate attorney about how to handle this. Generally a spouse would be POA first, with a backup outside of the marriage in case the spouse is unable to do so. But that isn't always the case. An attorney may be you best route - and as soon as possible. As dementia worsens, it's harder to make legal changes.
Good luck,
Carol
