Obtain an enduring power of attorney form from an office supplies store. Use a general form if the donor is granting broad financial powers. Use a limited form if the donor is only granting specific powers.
Write in the donor's name and address in the donor section.
Write in your name and address in the attorney section.
Complete the powers section for a limited power of attorney. Forms vary. Follow the form's instructions for granting powers. For example, if the powers section is blank and the instructions indicate that you must insert the powers, write in the specific powers.
State whether the power of attorney goes into effect or continues when the donor becomes incapacitated below the powers section. For example, if the power of attorney will continue when the donor becomes incapacitated, you might write, "These powers continue in the event of the donor's incapacitation."
Find a witness. A witness must sign the power of attorney at the same time as the donor. Ask a person over the age of 17 who isn't your spouse or partner, or the spouse of partner of the donor, to witness.
Meet with the donor and witness. Bring the enduring power of attorney with you. Ask the donor and witness to sign their names in the labeled spots. Ask each person to print her name under her signature. Sign your name on the attorney line and print your name below. Make a copy of the document for yourself. Give the original to the donor.
