When working with my clients there are a number of scenarios I commonly see regarding Powers of Attorney. Mary is a good example...
Mary is married to James and has two kids, Elizabeth in college and David in middle school. Mary’s father has passed but her mother and James' parent are still alive.
Mary is the primary caregiver for her mother, Susan, who now lives alone. Mary tries to visit Susan as often as she can and also occasionally drives her to various appointments and helps her with her shopping.
Elizabeth attends college out-of-town, and while the family tries to squeeze in regular visits to school for events like parent’s weekend and homecoming, they normally stay in touch through text and Elizabeth will call when she has a problem.
Mary's son, David, is active in school and club sports and school clubs and Mary spends a lot of time driving him to and attending practices and events.
Mary and James occasionally are able to get away for long weekends by themselves but haven't had a real vacation alone in some time.
