Hi again, Birkett ~

The simple answer to your question is yes, you can prepare your own -
or better yet, you can buy at your local stationery store (Staples,
Office Max, Office Depot, etc.) a General Durable Power of Attorney
which will conform to the North Carolina General Statutes.
If you wish to draft your own, the statutory requirements and contents
are included in the NC statutes, here:
Note that it needs to be signed by your boss before a Notary Public.
Whether or not your boss is incapacitated or incompetent, it can be
registered with the court. That statute is here,
And it can be revoked according to statute, those rules are here,
A good lay (non-lawyer) source of information can be found on the NC
State website here,
Even though this explanation is in conjunction with the Elderly Law
the provisions are generally true for the circumstances you describe
in your clarification.
If you choose to purchase the form from a stationer, the same
information, including how to register with the power of attorney with
the court, etc., is included with the form.
If you both are not familiar with the responsibilities and possible
consequences of such a power of attorney, you should consult with an
attorney before you execute it.
