Colorado Advance Directive Form
Below is the information you'll need in order to obtain an Advance Directive in Colorado.
Overview: The Colorado Living Will is included in an Advance Directive packet that also contains forms for naming a Health Care Proxy, which they refer to as a Medical Power Of Attorney, and specifying Anatomical Gifts.
(Note: If a person is deemed incompetent and hasn't named anyone to make medical decisions for them, a Proxy Decision Maker — or Health Care Surrogate — can be appointed by a group of interested persons.)
Required Information: You and two (2) witnesses must sign your CO Living Will for it to be considered valid.
Remember to add your completed form to your Everplan!
