I'm not a legal expert, but I can try to provide some general information. The Power of Attorney (POA) for an individual typically grants the designated person the authority to make decisions on behalf of the person who appointed them, often referred to as the principal. However, the specific powers and limitations of a POA can vary depending on the terms outlined in the document, as well as any applicable laws in the jurisdiction. Additionally, laws regarding visitation rights can also vary depending on the circumstances and location.

In general, a POA does not typically have the power to completely restrict or forbid all visitation to the principal, unless specific restrictions were included in the POA document or there are extenuating circumstances such as concerns for the principal's safety or well-being. That being said, it's essential to consult with an attorney who specializes in elder law and has knowledge of the specific laws and regulations in your jurisdiction. They will be able to provide you with accurate guidance based on your particular situation.
