South Carolina Health Care Power of Attorney

How do you name someone to make health care decisions for you when you can’t on your own? Those situations can happen unexpectedly (due to a sudden medical condition or accident) or on a schedule (surgery). The Health Care Power of Attorney in South Carolina is a statutory form that enables another person to help you in those situations. You can get a copy of the form here. ¬†(The Lieutenant Governor’s website is a great resource on other aging related items as well.) The form is pretty self explanatory – it has been designed for non lawyers to use. ¬†However, if you have any questions, it is a good idea to call your lawyer for guidance, to make sure it is filled out correctly.
