Larimer Advance Care Planning is a collaborative effort funded by NextFifty Initiative, with contributions from the Health District of Northern Larimer County and community partners, to engage and support individuals in completing advance care plans at no cost.

Our vision is that advance care planning becomes a natural and expected part of care in our community. We want adults to feel comfortable discussing their future medical treatment options and expressing their values with their loved ones and medical providers, ensuring that medical directives are available when they are needed.

The Health District is proud to partner with UCHealth's Aspen Club, UCHealth Medical Group, Palliative Care Team at UCHealth, Larimer County Office on Aging, and Sharing the Care Campaign to enhance advance care planning in our community.
