Translated MA Care Planning Documents


Language is an asset, not a barrier, to getting good care.

We translated the Honoring Choices MA Health Care Proxy and MA Personal Directive (Living Will) to help ensure adults can access and understand essential planning documents, and communicate their goals and choices to receive equitable quality care.

Each translated Health Care Proxy below has both the translated instructions & document and an English version. Complete both if possible, and give a copy to your physician to put in your medical record.  Just download and print.

What is a MA Health Care Proxy?

    • This is a legal document where you choose a trusted person to be your Health Care Agent.  Your Agent makes health care decisions for you if you are unable to make decisions yourself. Adults 18 and older can complete a Health Care Proxy.

What is a MA Personal Directive (Living Will)? 

    • This is a personal document where you give your Health Care Agent, family and care providers information and instructions about the care you want. If you are unable to choose an Agent to complete a Health Care Proxy, just start with the Personal Directive.

What is the "Who's Your Agent?" Flyer/Poster?

    • Care providers and community groups can use this flyer/poster to invite your staff and community members to complete their care planning documents. We can customize the flyer for your group. For more information, Ellen at
