Living Wills Lawyers in Colorado
A living will is a set of instructions concerning what medical actions should be taken in the event that you are no longer able to make decisions or are otherwise incapacitated. Generally, a living will provides directions about the course of medical treatment.
A living will may express the person's desire not to be kept alive through the use of medical technology when the person is in a terminal condition and unable to communicate the person's wishes to decline further treatment. In addition, a living will may forbid certain kinds of treatment.
A living will can provide instruction as to whether to:
- Be kept pain free
