Power of attorney vs. spouse in ontario

If I assign my Power of Attorney for personal care to my Son and I become unable to make my own decisions, does my wife (being my spouse) who is of her right mind, "trump" the POA? Meaning does she get to make the decisions regarding my personal care and not the POA
