Can I find out who has general and health POA for my mother or is it privileged? I have been informed by my mother's attorney that I do not have the right to know who my mother has appointed as her general and health power of attorney inclusive of the date of assignment. My mother has advanced dementia. I was told that I had to get my mother's approval and the approval of the person(s) who has been given her POA. Apparently there are privacy laws prohibiting disclosure to those not authorized which I find illogical, but, then again, laws don't have to be based upon logic or what a reasonable person might interpret.
