DPOA and Guardianship?

Hi all,


1. Is a Durable power of Attorney considered a Guardianship?

2. If no money has been transferred to the direct control of the Agent on behalf of the senior…does a guardianship exist?

3. IF the senior in question….is capable of handling their own affairs…and still has full mental faculties… and any savings, bank accounts are still in their name…isn’t it best to leave it that way?

4. When does a guardianship exist?

thanks for your input…
