Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping. First, you want to be aware that a Power of Attorney terminates automatically upon death. So, any authority she has under the POA will have to be exercised while she's alive. She will need two POA's....a Durable General POA and a Medical POA. I can provide you templates for each which you can easily complete for the specific names and addresses. I would have to do that for you through the Premium Services option offered by JustAnswer. If that would be helpful, let me know and I'll extend that offer and you can then decide whether or not to accept. Fair enough?
