The forms have to be signed by your mother in front of the notary. Also to help your mom keep her services from being disconnected, have her ongoing bills set up on automatic pay through her bank. This can generally be done online.

Should mention that guardianship is more difficult to get. It is done through the probate court and is quite expensive. To get guardianship your mother would have to be deemed incompetent. It doesn't sound like that is the case.

Chances are that a dPOA will be enough. Guardianships are generally sought when a POA was not appointed in time or the person has become too difficult to reason with. It does not sound like the case with your mother.

Mamadee, what you need is a durable power of attorney (dPOA) for finances. This will let you act as her financial representative when she isn't able. While you are doing that, you may also want to do the form to be her healthcare POA (healthcare proxy), so you can make medical decisions for her when she is not able. You can talk to any attorney to get the forms. The finance POA forms are also available online, but check to make sure it is the right one for your state. The forms have to be signed in the presence of a notary.
