Health Care Directive/Advanced Planning 

Everyone should have a current Health Care Directive. Our Care Coordinators can help you complete the form. You can schedule an appointment with them at 387-3787 to complete your forms and discuss long term plans for health care.
Use these links to find a Health Care Directive Form:

For comprehensive coverage of the issues involved use the long-form Light the Legacy/Honoring Choices MN Health Care Directive and the form completion guide.

For a shorter form that covers your main health care goals use the 2-page Light the Legacy/Honoring Choices MN Health Care Directive

For more Health Care Directive forms, including forms in other languages, visit the Light the Legacy website


The Provider Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) form is a portable medical order that can give patients with advanced serious illness the option to exercise increased control over the treatment they do and do not want to receive at the end of life. The POLST form is NOT the same as a Health Care Directive, but it may be an important component of advance planning in certain circumstances. Unlike a healthcare directive, a POLST form must be signed by a licensed provider to be valid.

For POLST (Provider Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment) information, visit the Minnesota Medical Association website:
