However, you must demonstrate that the parent is incompetent and cannot care for either themselves or their affairs. Only when you convince a judge that the parent is incompetent will the court approve this. A "power of attorney" is a power that is VOLUNTARILY GIVEN up by someone to someone else. It is not something you "obtain."AnswerThe first answer addresses an incompetent parent. Since your parent is competent, their grant of a Power of Attorney must be voluntary.

No. Generally, a parent executes a power of attorney in order to give another adult the authority to make decisions for their child for only a short period such as when the child will be in the care of someone else as during a vacation. The person to whom the parent has given that power of attorney cannot assign it to someone else. The reason is that the person to whom the power of attorney was given does not have the right to give someone else authority over the child. That right is the exclusive right of the parent. For any extended period a temporary guardianship would be necessary and that must be done through the court system. You should always consult an attorney regarding such important legal matters.
