A power of attorney is typically a legal document that gives one person the power to act for another person, with authority to make legal decisions about property, finances, or medical care. It's usually used when a person is ill, disabled, or not present for a transaction. There are different types of power of attorney depending on the situation -- in which the designated person might have certain limits, durations, springing conditions, or otherwise.
