According to the terms of a Utah power of attorney instrument, the "agent" has the ability to act on the "principal's" behalf in financial, health-related, or other issues. A principal’s power of attorney allows them to appoint someone else to take care of their daily tasks in the event that they are unable to do it themselves.
