It's common for aging parent to grant power of attorney
Mar 13, 2016 1:00 AM - Q. We will be listing my mom's house for sale within the next couple weeks. Mom has some memory and dementia issues, though much of the time she understands where she is at and usually has no problems recognizing family and friends. We are concerned, though, that at some critical point in time, she will not be able do what is required. A friend suggested I get a power of attorney.
