  1. More than one person can have a power of attorney if that is what your grandmother wishes. You need to specify that you can each act independently.

    If you are talking about a health care power of attorney, Ohio has standard forms that can be found online.

    Your grandmother woudl have to be sign the power of attorney and woudl have to be competent.

    I would suggest that you consult an attorney to make sure this is handled properly.
