You need to have a DURABLE Power of Attorney for your husband. The DPA will be in effect if he becomes legally incompetent whereas the POA is not usable with someone who is incompetent.. Also, a Living Will for each of you. You need to consider all possibilities. Definitely contact the Alzheimer's Association. It is the oldest group in the country. If you have children, they need to know what is happening as well as other family members.

There is much more info. Google "Alzheimer's".
