Another thought is that if your friend already knows an attorney local to her, then I'd think the attorneys might have some sort of "network" they use if they need something simple done three states away. Better that than having to fly or drive there. So even one local to her might be able to give a referral to an elder law attorney in Kansas City.
So suggest she call a local-to-her attorney if she knows one and ask. The worst that can happen is they'll say "We can't help you on that one".
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
