Choosing a Health Care Power of Attorney

After you have had conversations with your loved ones about your health care choices, it is time to choose someone who will speak for you if you are unable to speak for yourself.

You can do this by completing a South Carolina Health Care Power of Attorney form. This process is also known as choosing a proxy.

The Conversation Project’s guide will help you to choose a proxy and/or serve as a proxy for someone else.
