Death and Dying with Terrance / by Mandy Wintink


I hadn’t met Terrence in person before this conversation but Jenn Chan  (another regular guest on Mandyland) mentioned him when I was talking about death one day. She told me that Terrance has a brother with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and that his brother was considering Medical Assistant in Dying (MAID). I provoked Terrence with a little facebook comment about having him on my podcast and he took the bait. We chatted a few times on facebook just to organize timing and then here we get right into it about death and dying. It was such a pleasure to talk to him and I look forward to doing it again. 

Terrence is a huge advocate and consultant for accessibility and (I think) slowly becoming a Death and Dying Doula. He’s available to consult on aging, accessibility, disability, death, and dying. You can find his info in the resources section below.
