The NH has advised my brother to make me his POA. How does this work since he can't sign his name?

Sarahj53,

When my dad got into financial trouble & was being sued by Discover card Legal Aid actually came to his home.

Perhaps this is something that could work in your situation?

I'm not sure where to answer Countrymouse, I guess here will work. My brother is 55, left handed but cannot use his left hand or arm, he has nephropathy in the right and can't sign his name. He is bedridden and a lift is used to get him out of bed, so me taking him to see a lawyer or banker is out. He gets dialysis 2X a week and has to be transported there and to any medical appointments. The NH recognizes any witnessed mark he makes, I'm pretty sure they use a notary.

Hey Sarah, just discovered a new invention that provides sight for many blind people!
It's called eSight - look it up; it looks exactly like the wrap around glasses the guy on Star Wars used, and it was invented in Canada. Costs $10,000 right now, but that's nothing to pay to be able to see....

If he has no Dementia/ALZ then get him to a Lawyer. The lawyer can make up both Financial and Medical. A witness will sign off besides ur brother. You can check with your state what legal process they go by.

Use a notary? 

But, anyway, why can't he sign his name?

Sight loss does not prevent people from exercising their full legal rights, including appointing others to act for them. I'm sure any organisation championing sight loss would be able to advise you on how best to handle this and other kinds of personal admin.

I'm assuming that your brother's other disabilities do not affect his mental health?
