I have been asked by my sister to be her POA. She has another sister that lives in the same state, but refuses to let her to fill that role. I have been undergoing health concerns as well as my partner. I am 65 and my sister who has lived alone in the country for many years and has had not much contact with others, myself nor my family. She is 76-years-old and I really don't think she has anyone else who can fill that role. I have another sister who has relied on me for many years since her husband passed and she has declining health. I am her executor. We live in the same state, fortunately. I don't know if I would be able to fulfill that role. She is a Veteran. Does anyone have advise Ion how I should proceed on this. I really don't know if I can be her POA effective. Since she is a veteran is there any help there for her? What all is involved? Would I be expected to be her caregiver in the role of POA?
Any advice would be most helpful.
