Financial Responsibilities of POA

My brother has the power of attorney, with me listed also, over my father who has had a stroke. My brother has lost his job and can no longer make the payments on my father's home. Now, he says that he is moving away and we should take care of my father. I am not able to take over any bills that will lapse when my brother leaves. I feel I need to be there in case my father needs me to admit him to a hospital or other related health issues. I do not on the other hand, have the means to carry the burden of his financial responsibilities. Will this damage my credit in any way, and what legal responsibility do I have to pay my father's debts, by being listed on the power of attorney?
