My parents, age 88 & 86 live next door to me. My brother, POA and executor lives in NJ. Will this be a problem? Right now my parents are living on their own and are relatively healthy. I will be the designated one to physically care for them when the time comes. I am the surviving daughter. My younger brothers both live in NJ and are very much hands on. We have open communication and they are willing to do whatever it takes when the time comes, but my concerns are that I am not their POA. Can you see that posing a problem? They have a Will and Health Directives which my brother has a copy and is their POA.
