More than ten organizations have developed and distributed tools or forms to complete dementia directives. Many include provisions to stop eating and drinking. This is known as SED by AD.


The most recent organization to publish an AD for SED is the Final Exit Network. The key language states “At My Chosen End Point, I wish to be allowed to die by VSED, or the voluntary stopping of eating and drinking. I do not want to be encouraged, persuaded, or forced to eat or drink. I do not want food or fluid to be held near my mouth to provoke me to open my mouth reflexively.”
