Kentucky power of attorney forms let a person transfer authority to another individual to manage and transact their business or medical affairs. These types of forms can be useful if a person is expecting to be unavailable for a period of time, has a transaction that he or she would like someone else to handle for them, or wants the protection of someone by their side making medical decisions if they’re not able.
