The call came from “David” who explained that his mother can’t remember anything anymore. He had what he thought was a quick question. When anyone with an aging parent who can’t remember anything says he has a “quick question” I am sure it won’t be quick. What was the easiest way to get a Power of Attorney for her, he wanted to know.
The way David described his mother, it might be too late for a Power of Attorney. And I hope you’re more proactive than David. He thought he was really smart in rushing out to get the document now because his mother could still recognize him, having dementia. Wrong. That’s beingreactive with dementia. That’s not YOU of course.
