My father has a Durable Health Care Power of Attorney that appoints me as his agent "effective on [his] inability to make or communicate health care decisions". It goes on to say that if I am unable or unwilling to serve, he appoints my brother, and if my brother is unable or unwilling to serve, he appoints his wife.
If I am unable to serve as his agent for a specific health care crisis, can I pass that on to my brother just for that crisis? Or, once passed, is the appointment my brother's forever now?
If it changes anything, my brother and I get along extremely well and are of one mind with regards to our father's health, the challenge is that Dad lives in Arizona and my brother and I both live in Colorado, so we generally take turns flying down there and helping him out. It would be great if whoever was there at the time, had the legal powers.
