Question please-my husbands mother is very ill now and has a 50% chance of getting better. She is in the hospital now. She has had mild demntia for 2 yrs now and was in assisted living. A grandaughter who said she did not want POA when the family talked about it but then in a few days after we left. she asked my husbands mom who was confused the entire time we were there to ok a POA. We just found out today! 4/20/16. Doesn't someone doing that have to send out a letter or even a certified letters to the actual children to approve or disaprove of their intent? You have to with a guardianship as I had to do to see if they(siblings of my dad) had a problem with it. Now this grandaughter is saying she can't make the hard decisions about my husbands mothers health. Were we all to get a letter informing us of the POA? Mother is unable to do anything. She knows her name but doesn't even know she is critically ill. Can someone please help? Please!
