A South Dakota medical power of attorney permits an individual to select an agent who will decide all aspects of their health care when they cannot speak for themselves. There are a few restrictions as to the choice for the agent; whoever is chosen should live, or at least be available, in a location that is close to the individual, and the agent must share the same views as the individual concerning appropriate health care and end-of-life treatment options. As an alternative to this power of attorney form, a Living Will may be used to specify one’s end-of-life preferences without the use of an agent.
