Abstract: Person‐centered care (PCC) has been promoted for decades in many healthcare systems around the world. The essence of PCC lies in placing patients at the heart of the planning, delivery, and evaluation of services and care, and of power‐sharing and decision‐making opportunities. One of the key challenges in caring for those with dementia is that the person's voice is gradually “lost” through the deterioration of his or her abilities over the course of the disease. Therefore, PCC has special relevance to this particular group. This entry provides a definition of PCC and a description of its attributes, its particular relevance in dementia care, models of care delivery, and research findings in the evaluation of PCC outcomes.
