Abstract: In the public debate on the extension of euthanasia for people with dementia, in addition to ethical considerations and arguments, other issues have to be kept in mind. The diagnosis of dementia is difficult and the clinical picture is very fluctuating. The assessment and especially the operationalization of legal capacity and the use of advance directives are complex problems. The discussion should be conducted against the backdrop of a cultural framework in which the interpretation and development of palliative care is crucial. The development of a framework like advance care planning creates opportunities. The question remains whether the legal issues can be clarified and whether a legal approach generates solutions for the problems described
