Nursing care facility wants me to initial certain areas on paper work for step dad, do I put my initials and then POA after them?

I am not sure there is a "correct" answer. I would probably use your step dad's initials and then put ", by POA"

At the nursing home you can sign the documents as a sponsor or as the person since you have power of attorney. I agree that there is not one correct way to sign or initial the documents. I would say if you use your step-father's initials make sure that someone reviewing the documents would know that you did so via power of attorney.
