Five Wishes Workshop

Come learn more about this valuable FREE planning tool for advanced directives and end of life care. The Five wishes document is a great conversation starter for individuals and families to outline wishes for medical treatment, how they want to be treated at end of life and final arrangements.  The document is easy to complete and with 2 witness signatures is legally valid in the state of Colorado.  In this workshop we will review each option, answer questions and if participants would like complete their own Five Wishes and have it witnessed.
