What can I expect at the initial doctor appointment to activate the medical power of attorney? We have been in touch with the doctors about my dad's abusive behavior and he has already been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. We have an appointment on Tuesday and the doctor said they are going to activate the medical power of attorney. I'm not entirely sure what to expect and I have all kinds of anxiety about it because I know my dad is going to be furious! He is already extremely abusive. Are they going to ask me questions right in front of him about his forgetfulness and his behavior? Or are there routine questions to ask him and just quietly sign it and let you go? I really don't know what to expect and I'm extremely nervous.

My Board of Elections said that as long as my elder understood enough to know that she was voting and could indicate yes or no for questions or candidates, that was good enough for them. They also set her up on auto absentee ballots as long as we request one for each new election season. Thus, when she moved to the memory care, we had a tax referendum she voted in, and that was it for the year. The next spring, I sent in her request for the primary, and then she also got the next 2 run off ballots in the mail and the general election. Her nursing home is in a different district, so I print off the info about her candidates and read it to her when we have the ballots so we can have it done all at once. I knew her party and that helped.
