You will need to review the Power of Attorney to see what authority it grants her. A standard durable power of attorney would cover financial decisions, health care decisions and personal care decisions. If it is not a "durable" power of attorney then it may not be effective. Ask her for a copy of the document and have it reviewed by a lawyer.
