My mom who has Avanced dementia wants me to be her "Agent/Attorney In Fact" for her regarding her Durable Power of Attorney. One of her requests is for my sister not to have any say or any involvement.
If for some reason something happens to me or I am unable we don't have any backup person We don't have any family other than I'm Australia and we don't know anyone who is willing to act in this capacity. She wants me to protect her from my sister. Please help. We don't want to take this to court as my sister is very wealthy and can afford the best legal assistance where as we are recipients of Medicaid and financially struggling. Please help.
I need to also draw up some legal document but I have nobody to act as agent. I have spent the last 14 years being very ill and the last 9 years taking care of both my mom and dad and have struggled with not being isolated and totally involved in taking care of my parents.
Please advise if the a Healthcare Durable Power of Attorney and Financial Power of Attorney can be combined in one document or do we need 2 separate documents?
