I need to get insurance on the home I am power of attorney
As power of attorney you would not get insurance in your name, you would get insurance on behalf of the owner whom you hold the POA.
The issue here is called "insurable interest" in the property being insured. Speak with an insurance agent about this issue, provide a copy of the deed to the home (which likely is available online at the county register of deeds website), provide a copy of the POA, and there should not be a problem. Just confirm that the named insured on the policy is correct.
