Making Final Plans

-
(KARE)  Minnesota stands out in how residents handle end-of-life issues.

The state has a program like none other in the world right now, a program called Honoring Choices Minnesota which helps people create a health care directive.

Terri Traudt knows the importance of such a document. Her mother, Maxine Beck, passed away last fall.

Beck survived colon cancer but then later grew somewhat dependent on others as she lived with macular degeneration and arthritis.

"She did not want a life of complete dependency," Traudt said.
