    Wonderfully informative acticlele. We could have sure used all this info a couple of years ago when we had to put my beloved Auntie in a home. I'm sure it will be a help to a lot of families struggling with these decisions. God Bless.

    Sorry, the Enduring Power of Attorney does NOT work after death, it works after mental incompetance.

    An 'Enduring Power of Attorney' would still be valid after death, as opposed to 'Power of Attorney'. The choice depends on what needs you want to be able to cover.

    Wonderful and informative article Sue. My family just recently began the process of putting a loved one in a home, unfortunately for us she didn't make it out of the hospital. The care providers in these facilities are wonderful indeed.
