The answer here is it depends and it is a very delicate situation.
You need to make sure that your mom is of sound mind to be able to make any changes to her will as it stands. The facts that she has dementia and that you have POA over her assets do not help the case of establishing she is of sound mind to make changes to her will.
In an abundance of caution, you would want to take her to see a neurologist and psychiatrist to make the determination that she is still of sound mind to be able to execute the legal documents necessary to modify her will. She will also need to be lucid at the time she is executing the amendment to the will in front of the presence of the notary/witnesses.
