I need to know if POA overrides a elderly person being able to live in assisted living and still maintain home for spouse.

Are you asking if POA has authority to move the elder from AL to NH? And that there is a spouse in AL? Do you have POA for both?

I'm not sure I understand the question. A regular POA does not have authority to determine where the person lives. A medical POA (healthcare proxy) does have that authority IF the person is not competent to make that decision.

What kind of POA is involved in this question?

I don't understand how "maintain home for spouse" fits into this question.

Perhaps a few more details would result in more specific answers.
