You said '' had been...an incapacitated person..." If she is no longer incapacitated, she has the rights to appoint whoever she wants as her Attorney-in-fact. However, if she is still incapacitated, she does not have any right to appoint you as her Attorney-in-fact because she does not have the legal capacity to do so.
