Hi, My father has Alzheimer's and my mother has power of attorney to deal with his financial and healthcare needs. Unfortunately, my mother has been diagnosed with cancer and is in hospital and very sick. I am concerned that she may pass away before my father and need to understand what happens to the power of attorney, i.e. does it die with my mother? If the power of attorney does stop when my mother dies is there a fast track way of becoming an attorney myself so the power of attorney can transfer to me. I am an executor of my mothers estate if that has any bearing on this? I hope you can help me Thanks, David.
