My question involves a power of attorney in the state of: CA
My mother is currently resting in convalescent home following short-term admission for dehydration; she is expected home in a few days. A slight amount of dementia has set in but she looked good and much improved otherwise when I visited her today. I have not procured a POA, and I know it's a big problem. We've had discussions but she resisted allowing anybody access to her checking account. Now a minor health crises has caught us by surprise, and it's time. I can talk to my Mom and explain what is happening and why. My two siblings are aware of the problem and support my efforts to get it done. I would like to know at what point a notary might refuse to notarize/witness a POA signed by her (it will be general durable POA for property management and health care management). Would it help to have the two siblings present? Thank you.
