Inhaltsangabe: What are the greatest end-of-life fears?

Days to weeks of unending, unbearable pain and suffering.

Months to years of lingering in Advanced Dementia.

Worse: you may suffer from BOTH. Why? Because doctors may not recognize pain if you cannot talk or complain. In badly damaged brains, behavior may not be typical for pain.

Why is Advanced Dementia a most feared disease?

It is the cruelest, longest, most frustrating and costliest.

Is there any option, if mental deterioration becomes devastating?

YES but traditional Living Wills rarely offer it. Physician-Assisted Dying cannot work: it requires your mind to be sound. Premature dying is unnecessary and tragic. Natural Dying can avoid both prolonged dying and premature dying. You receive all needed Comfort Care but forgo all ''dying-prolonging treatments''.

Spoon feeding and tube feeding are nurturing for others, but for Advanced Dementia patients who did NOT give informed consent when mentally capable, spoon feeding violates the First Principle of Medical Ethics, DO NO HARM. Why? Because it can:

Prolong your dying process;

Increase your risk of unrecognized, untreated pain and suffering;

Increase your risk of aspiration pneumonia; and,

Force you to starve to death, slowly.

The book's Natural Dying--Living Will is the first to offer this option: to give or to refuse consent for future spoon-feeding.

How will my future doctor and proxy/agent agree WHEN it is time for Natural Dying?

To describe your future condition, you select specific Criteria from a comprehensive list. Optional: use the illustrated My Way Cards tool to decide about each symptom, one-at-a-time. Dying by medical dehydration can be peaceful and usually occurs within two weeks.

What about unbearable pain and suffering?

The Natural Dying--Living Will lets you request Sedation to Unconsciousness--if no other way can relieve unending, unbearable pain and suffering. (A rarely offered option).

Is this Living Will all I need?

NO. A Living Will is merely a REQUEST--Pillar I of the ''ironclad strategy.'' Pillar II is: Ask your current physician to verify your informed consent for both Natural Dying and Sedation to Unconsciousness by signing recommended forms. Pillar III: Empower your proxy by you both signing an irrevocable agreement. Pillar IV: Swear/affirm an affidavit--a ''trump card''--so your proxy can fulfill this job description: to make sure others honor your Known Wishes.

More: Follow suggestions on how to select a proxy you can trust. Take steps to let 9-1-1 first responders and future doctors know your urgent wishes, retrieve your most current forms--so they can learn what treatments you DO or do NOT want. Also, find out if you might have a ''little dementia''--in private.

Isn't this a lot of work?

Yes, a couple of hours... so read the motivating stories. They show how diligent planning makes a huge difference in how long and how much one may suffer before dying; explain why powerful interest groups oppose Natural Dying and Sedation to Unconsciousness; and reveal how new highly promoted physician order (POLST) forms may override your prior expression of wishes--after you lose mental capacity. Then you'll want the strategies to overcome these challenges. A priest/ethicist's essay explains why Natural Dying is consistent with Catholic teachings.

The goal is to attain timely transitions--neither prolonged nor premature--that are as peaceful as possible for you and your loved ones. After completing your ''ironclad strategy,'' you need not worry if others will force you to endure a premature or prolonged dying. Relax and enjoy the rest of your life.

Über den Autor: Stanley A. Terman is a board-certified psychiatrist. He received an AB from Brown University, a PhD (biophysics) from MIT, and an MD from the University of Iowa. During his first five years in California, he taught at University of California, Irvine.

The continuous thread of Dr. Terman's professional goal is to empower people to make informed decisions so they can successfully meet challenges in their lives... with more pleasure, less suffering, and improved relationships. Over the years, he has employed a variety of modes. These include strategic psychotherapy with patients; founding and leading a non-profit organization; writing a medical thriller and three non-fiction books plus a revision; and new forms and tools for Advance Care Planning. His career has always been devoted to helping families and couples in crisis. For the last fifteen years, he has specialized on reducing the suffering of terminally ill patients and their loved ones. He is intensely motivated to prevent months to years of suffering by an unwanted, prolonged process of dying while also PREVENTING PREMATURE DYING.

In 2000, Dr. Terman founded a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that became Caring Advocates in 2005. He is currently its CEO and Medical Director. Caring Advocates helps people attain timely, peaceful transitions A) by informing them about their end-of-life conditions and choices; B) by helping them create an ''ironclad strategy''; and later, C) by encouraging all to honor their Known Wishes. In addition to service, Caring Advocates has educational programs; one informs people that although well-intentioned, some professionals and lay people make assumptions that actually violate the First Principle of Medical Ethics: DO NO HARM. One of Caring Advocates' research projects is to learn what choices people will make for their end-of-life treatment--if they are fully informed.

Dr. Terman is the author of Lethal Choice (2008), a medical/legal/psychological thriller, and these non-fiction books: The BEST WAY to Say Goodbye: A Legal Peaceful Choice at the End of Life (2007); Peaceful Transitions: Stories of Success and Compassion (Second Edition, 2011); and Peaceful Transitions: Plan Now, Die Later Ironclad Strategy (2011). The last two are also available in a combined, hardbound edition. To explain: ''Stories'' has two goals: to educate and to motivate; ''Plan Now, Die Later'' has two other goals: to explain the rationale and provide detailed step-by-step instructions to create a personalized ''ironclad strategy.'' All books are available as e-books.

Dr. Terman also created a new tool, My Way Cards or Natural Dying Living Will Cards for religious observers (2011)--to generate a personalized Natural Dying--Living Will. The cards/items use plain, straightforward descriptions with almost no medical jargon. Illustrative line drawings enhance the clarity of informing people what it is like to live with Advanced Dementia and other terminal illnesses so they can make decisions one symptom at a time. The resulting legal Living Will can be even more effective if combined with other recommended forms for an ''ironclad strategy.''

For all his work, Dr. Terman appreciates the extensive critical editing and numerous practical suggestions from his colleagues--prominent health care attorneys and clinical bioethicists.

Dr. Terman has been invited to give workshops around the world. In 2010, he went to Australia twice to present My Way Cards, once as an invited keynote speaker.

He lives in Carlsbad-by-the-Sea with his wife, Beth, with whom he takes daily walks with their three Pomeranian dogs while listening to music. He feels blessed with three wonderful children and three grandchildren.
