Advanced Health Care Directive

An advance health care directive communicates your health care decisions should you be unable to make or communicate them for yourself. Our social services staff is prepared to provide support and information to help you create a legal advance health care directive.

In your advance health care directive you will appoint a health care agent. Without the directive, state law determines who will make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so.

Copies of the Advance Health Care Planning Resource Guide for North Dakotans are available through our Social Services Department. A downloadable version of the advance directive form is below.
