Re: Incapacitated---power of attorney??

If the person is already incapacitated, it is too late for the person to execute a power of attorney. The only thing you can do is petition to have the parent declared incapacitated and start a gardianship with the child you have chosen as the gardian. You will need an attorney for these procedings.
