I have my Dad's Power of Attorney, and he is in assisted living and hospice. I was the backup for his wife who died. Since I'm single, can I appoint someone else in case something happens to me? Or if I create a Power of Attorney for myself, can that person step in the shoes of my Dad's Power of Attorney?
The concern is that if something happens to me, would the state come in to assign a ward/guardian for my Dad?
My Dad can still sign his name, but he wouldn't understand what he is signing.
Side note. I'm also the trustee of his trust, and the backup for it is his wife's sister. However, I'm not sure she would want the responsibility of his care.
