Advance care planning

Who should make your medical decisions if you’re not able to speak for yourself?

The UCHealth Aspen Club, in partnership with Sharing the Care Campaign of northern Colorado, continues to highlight the importance of discussing end-of-life health/medical issues, or “advance care planning.”

Learn about advance directives

Advance directives are legal documents that allow your doctors and loved ones to honor your wishes regarding your medical treatment. These documents only take effect when you are unable to make health care decisions for yourself.

Watch this video to learn more.

You can view/download the forms below. We can help you through the process by notarizing the forms, helping you understand the form and also with many presentations including The Conversation Project, Get Your Advance Directives done, The Death Café and Go Wish Game and Discussion.
