The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.
The answer depends on the fee you agree to with the attorney you ask to prepare the documents for you. Some attorneys will do this work on an hourly basis, and others will do the work on a flat fee basis.

There is not a standard fee. The preparation of just those documents can be fairly simple and inexpensive. However the larger question is how does it fit in with, and what exactly is, the rest of your estate plan? Most estate planning attorneys will try to help someone deal with or at least understand all contingencies: disability, taxes, death, protection for beneficiaries, types of assets/ownerships, long-term care. Therefore while the power of attorneys documents are part of the foundation and can be extremely important, there is more to a comprehensive plan.
This is not legal advice nor intended to create an attorney-client relationship. The information provided here is informational in nature only. This attorney may not be licensed in the jurisdiction which you have a question about so the answer could be only general in nature.
It is commendable that you are thinking about planning ahead. However, make sure you speak with a knowledgable attorney. Make sure that the attorney explains the significance of appointing a durable power of attorney and discuss the pros and cons of a springing power of attorney. Generally, your power of attorney will allow your agent to immediately act on your behalf regarding your finances even before you face incapacity so make sure you are fully aware of what you are looking to do and don't base your decision on fee alone.
