Power of Attorney – which form to use
There are a number of power of attorney forms. One is a General form and the other that I am questioning is called a Durable Power of Attorney. My husband has Parkinson disease along with dementia. Most of the time he is compentent, but there are times when he sort of goes to his ‘own place.’ Would the General Power of Attorney be effective if he does not have the ability to understand information. If I use the Durable form, is it only effective if he is unable to handle information or communicate coherently. Which form best suits a situation where a person is sometime coherent and other times not?
