A Medical Power of Attorney is for medical purposes only. It allows a competent adult to choose someone who can make medical decisions for them if they should become unable to make those decisions on their own behalf. The principal can choose to be specific as to what treatment the principal does and does not want, or, can leave those decisions up to the Medical Attorney-in-Fact. The Medical AIF will have the authority to sign documents when a physician has deemed the principal to be incompetent. A Durable Power of Attorney is another type of authority whereby a principal grants the power to act on their behalf to access bank accounts, pay bills, or sign any legal documents on behalf of the principal. Authority over medical treatment can also be granted with a Durable POA. There are various schemes that could be chosen. You could have the same person(s) serving in both capacities or name two separate agents. Since the powers under a Durable POA may overlap with those under a Medical POA the principal must decide who will have the authority over medical matters and make instructions to that effect clear in the two POAs IF two separate individuals will be chosen. You should seek the advice of an attorney who can review your situation, explain your options under your state laws and draft instruments that meet your needs.
