Your profile says that your parent is living in Assisted Living. If it is because of a physical disability, the POA still has to sit on the side lines until needed.
My Dad was in senior living and still able to function quite well even if he had sundowning. Dad did ask me to do all the billing for him as I was the financial POA, so we went to the bank and had that set up by the Branch Manager. Then when Dad wanted to sell his house, I was his "representative" for the sale. Dad was still able to sign all the real estate documents. I was also medical POA, so whenever Dad went to the ER, and he couldn't speak for himself, I would manage his case.
Is it a springing or durable POA? Are you anticipating executing your assigned powers now, or in the future? Is your parent disabled physically or mentally? Is dementia involved?
