Do I need more than a Power of Attorney & Legal Will?
When a spouse is admitted to an assisted living facility, Do I need more than a Power of Attorney & Legal Will?
My husband and I have been married for 19 years. He was diagnosed with Alzheimers around 4 to 5 years ago. When the time comes (he does have long term insurance) will I need more than the legal will we had drawn up 2 years ago and Power of Attorney to handle situations as they arrise.... A daughter of a man with alzheimers was admitting her father in an assisted living facility and closing his accounts, selling automobile, dealing with social security and she was not able to do these things with just the power of attorney....she had to go through the court system and a judge had to authorize everything ...
