I'm sorry to learn of your husband's diagnoses. The answer to your question is that YES, there are very likely to be other issues to address. Each situation is distinct. First, as you have correctly mentined, a DPOA is a MUST. You will need a health care power of attorney and a financial durable power of attorney. There are good ones and there are bad ones. Next, get yourselves prepared for medicaid eligibility. This is a state and federal program, administered at the state level. It's pretty darn complex. This is the prime situation to contact an experienced elder law attorney. You will need to enquire of this attorney--what percentage of your practice involves elder law. It is not 100%, then you are in the wrong place.
