Larimer Advance Care Planning
On April 1, 2023, Larimer County Extension assumed operation of the Larimer Advance Care Planning Program and will carry on this work in the community. You can contact them by calling 970-498-6019 or visiting Larimer.gov/acp. Larimer County Extension is a partnership between Larimer County and Colorado State University that serves as an information resource for the community.
Larimer Advance Care Planning was originally a collaborative effort by the Health District of Northern Larimer County and community partners to engage and support individuals in completing advance care plans at no cost.
Started in 2016 with grant assistance from more than a half-dozen local organizations, Larimer Advance Care Planning set out to make advance care planning—wishes about your medical care if you can’t speak for yourself—a natural and expected part of the continuum of health care in Larimer County.
Over the years, the program educated more than 18,000 people on the importance of making and documenting decisions about end-of-life care. In addition, more than 5,300 people completed their advance care directives, and more than 1,300 health-care providers received specialized training on the subject.
