A Power of Attorney is a legal document in which you give someone else the authority to make decisions on your behalf which you are not capable of making yourself due (usually) to an illness or absence. There are two kinds of Powers of Attorney: one for property and financial decisions, and one for personal care (formerly called a living will). It operates only as long as you are alive.
