The 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 which 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.
