About

Stanley 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, wrote three books, and created the patient decision aid, "My Way Cards."
As a bioethicist and board-certified psychiatrist, I specialize in end-of-life planning. Strategic Advance Care Planning (patent pending) anticipates conflicts so terminal and especially dementia patients can attain timely and peaceful transitions. For patients with no or inadequate Living Wills, "Now Care Planning" (patent pending) strives to overcome the resistance of others.
Wherever you are "InterviewByInternet.com" can let us use HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing so you can "Plan Now to Die Later (R) to Live Longer," or allow your relative to attain agreed-upon end-of-life wishes. I can work with your trusted therapist/provider to attain this goal: A timely and peaceful dying.
