Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Sorry for taking so long to reply. My sister and her husband are both mentally competent. The nursing home my sister is in wants me to be her power of attorney. Does that mean I will be responsible, somehow, for her after she leaves the home? What are the reasons, good or bad, for the nursing home wanting me to have power of attorney? I looked over the papers she signed when she went in, and she seems to know more about how things work than I did.
Your second question: no, when he leaves the hospital he will go to a rehab facility, for we don't know how long, because he has colon cancer now.
