- Get your ducks in a row and then go play.

And as I have stated, unless what you did to "get your ducks in a row" are irrevocable by the elderly person in question, you have not solved the problem anywhere other than in your imagination. We had those very same ducks lined up, and with a stroke of Dad's pen they were gone.

My point is not to argue with you since we have a track record of not doing that effectively. Rather it is to keep others from believing that simply having medical and legal POAs, talking with your kids about how things should take place and setting up permission for professionals to contact your kid is not enough. All that gives you is a false sense of security that you have handled things.

not feeling the need to discuss this further with you unless you have something new to bring to the table
