There has been growing discussion of advance care planning for dementia, with new tools recently released by End of Life Washington and by End of Life Choices New York. 


Another longtime innovator is Stanley Terman, PhD, MDAs a bioethicist and board-certified psychiatrist, Terman offers Strategic Advance Care Planning (patent pending), which offers solutions to anticipated conflicts so terminally ill and especially patients in advanced dementia can attain timely and peaceful transitions.


For end-stage patients who have no, or inadequate Living Wills, he offers Now Care Planning (patent pending), which strives to influence physicians to write orders to fulfill the incapacitated patient’s needs–if all family members are certain what interventions the patient would, and would not want now.


Dr. Terman’s career focuses on empowering people to make informed decisions so they can successfully meet challenges in their lives with more pleasure, less suffering, and improved relationships. He helps couples and families in several ways. These include reducing the suffering of terminally ill patients and their loved ones, especially if they face huge challenges of Advanced Dementia and desire an “Ironclad Strategy” to compel others to honor their end-of-life wishes. 


In collaboration with clinicians, bioethicists, chaplains, and attorneys, he founded a non-profit organization in 2000, wrote three books that focuses on end-of-life. In 2009, he began working on the patient decision aid, “My Way Cards” that helps people complete living wills–that  can now be completed on a kitchen table, computer, or cellphone.
