You should first thoroughly consider whether you should accept appointment.

To be able to decide whether you should accept appointment, you need to thoroughly understand the functions and obligations that you would be taking on in accepting the role as a person's attorney.

It is definitely the case that you need to look at the wider context of a well formulated PLAN in which the enduring power of attorney is a part.  The enduring power of attorney is often not the answer in itself.
