my 78 year old mother in law is financially incompetent so in an effort to help organize her affairs, my husband became her atty in fact a couple months ago. in our "auditing" of her financial life, we came to realize she can barely comprehend words on a written page. she is an adjunct teacher who has been called to teach 2 classes a semester for several years, including this semester. is my husband, as her atty in fact, legally obligated to inform the school of her waning ability to perform her job, or to instruct them not to rehire her next semester? conversely, can he get in trouble for not doing this without her consent (she'll never consent: she's a lifelong depressive who is also surely in denial about her waning abilities.)
