Answer:

You would want to find out if the Uncle has abandoned his position under the Power of Attorney. if not, the Uncle may be able to authorize you to take her to Alabama where you could file for Guardianship if needed, or if she is competent she could execute a Power of Attorney for you to be the agent.
