Any power of attorney should be given only to a trusted person. This person granted the power of attorney is called the attorney in fact. The attorney in fact has the power to do anything the document grants. The general power of attorney should be limited to necessary facts.
Specific Power Of Attorney:
This allows the attorney in fact to be limited to a specific act. For example, you want to sell a car and will not be in the country. You can have a trusted person to sell the car for you. They will only be able to do that specific act of selling the car for you.
Health Care Power Of Attorney:
This will allow someone usually a family member. To make health care decisions for you. When you enter a hospital you never know if you will be able to make decisions throughout your treatment. In most states you can sign a Health Care Power Of Attorney. Your hospital has its own form for this so you should use that one.
