I already have the POAs and Healthcare surrogate from my mother before she became incapacitated. Is there any need to now obtain legal guardianship in addition to these legal documents now that she has been found incapacitated? It is mentioned in these that she "... request that no guardianship proceeding in the event of my disability..." this is in the durable POA. The durable POA Healthcare includes... "Guardian of Person ... for any reason be required, I nominate my Agent as guardian." In the Health Care Surrogate & Alternate, it includes, "In the event that I have been determined to be incapacitated to provide informed consent for medical treatment and surgical and diagnotics procedures, I wish to designate as my surrogate for health care decisions, my daughter, xxx."
My other question is that we now live in Ohio and these documents were prepared in Florida before she was deemed incapacitated. Are these still in effect now in Ohio and will I need to obtain legal guardianship?
