    Default Girlfriend Disabled After Stroke

    My question involves a person located in the state of Georgia that in 2016 had a major stroke which left her permanently disabled. Between me,my mother and our daughter we take care of her. Two times in the past 4 yrs we have had to have either one of her sisters or our daughter to sign for her to have a medical procedure. My question is what can we do to have me or my mother the power of attorney for medical issues only? We was quoted $2500 from a local lawyer and I canít see that happening

    That was probably to be responsible for the bill.

    what can we do to have me or my mother the power of attorney for medical issues only?
    As long as she is mentally competent to understand what she is signing, you can find the forms all over the internet:

    If she is not mentally competent to understand what she is signing, you'll have to seek conservatorship or guardianship over her.

    Seek to be appointed as her conservator or guardian.
