I'm changing your category to Power of Attorney (from Civil Rights), so that your question is viewed more appropriately.
A power of attorney (POA) authorizes someone to act for someone else upon whatever terms, conditions and limitations are contained in the POA and subject to the limitations, if any, set forth in the POA. Typically speaking, the agent (the person who is appointed/designated POA) does not act until the people who granted the POA, in this case your grandparents, can no longer act in their own interests. However, since your grandparents are deaf, it is possible it was intended for the POA to act immediately. As long as your grandparents still have the capacity to make decisions and handle their own affairs, they can revoke the POA. The best thing would be for them, or their attorney, to notify their son in writing that he is no longer their POA, he is no longer authorized to act for them, and he is to desist purporting to act for them. They then need to notify any person/party/entity/company that might have dealt with the son-POA or might have known that son was POA to ensure they know he is no longer POA. Ultimately, your grandparents' best bet is to visit with an attorney that can help them clean this up quickly and clearly. This will ensure that the proper persons receive notice.
