Correction to my first statement...Grandma can revoke her previously granted Power of Attorney if she still has capacity, ie., if she understands what she is doing.

A power of attorney can be revoked at any time by the grantor, at least where I live. It sounds like you should consult a lawyer.

Shouldn't cousin be paid for caregiving that she's doing? Certainly if grandma has funds, she should be paying for her own care. Consider setting up a caregiving contract for now with the cousin, and when grandma moves back in with you, you should set one up so that she's paying her own way.
