dc.description.abstractAim. To review contemporary literature on quality of life for people with dementia. Background. One of the consequences of population ageing is the predicted increase in the incidence of dementia. While we can as yet do little to affect the course of the disease, health care professionals are well-placed to intervene to affect quality of life and quality of care for people with dementia. Results. Research into quality of life for people with dementia has grown markedly over the last decade, in line with evolving conceptual and theoretical understandings of this complex concept. While much of the literature continues to focus on assessment and measurement of quality of life, emerging areas of interest are noted, including dialogue associated with personhood; dignity; and dining and mealtime experiences. Conclusion. Literature on quality of life for people with dementia is as diverse as the concept itself. Established and emerging areas of research suggest that this diversity will continue into the future as we strive to better understand quality of life for people with dementia in all its complexity.en_US
