Drafting a Living Will in Colorado
The most common type of health care directive is a living will. This is morbidly referred to as the “pull-the-plug” document. Not the greatest name for a document, we know. However, in our minds, this is the most important document you can do for your family.
When you complete a living will, you get to decide how you want to be treated in an end-of-life situation. This means if you are in a vegetative state and life support is the only thing keeping you alive, you get to decide how long would you like to stay on that life support. This is a very stressful decision to leave to your family who may end up wondering if they made the right decision for the rest of their lives. With this document, you take that decision away from them, and you get to choose how you want to be treated so they don’t have to.
