crps, I would highly recommend that you and your parent make an appointment with an "Elder Law Attorney" who would probably recommend other important documents, such as a Medical Directive, which would help the POA later down the road with serious medical issues. The Directive is a guide on what the parent wishes to be or not to be done.

How current is your parent's Will? If the Will is very out-of-date as State Laws do change over the years, a new one would be needed.

I assume the legal documents are for your Mom, as per your profile. As cmagnum had mentioned above, your Mom must be able to under the legal documents she is signing. If there is a certain part of the day where Mom is fairly sharp, set the Attorney appointment for that time frame.

Go to see a lawyer with your mother who signs and gives you or whoever she wants medical POA and durable POA. She must be competent to do this. How bad is her dementia?
