Abstract

"A life worth living", "I'm still here", I am me are just a few terms you hear associated with books or events relationg to people with dementia. They are examples of how people with dementia are gradually becoming more empowered and involved in activities that are specific to them, such as advisory groups, policy discussions, service developments, research, awareness-raising campaigns, and national and international alliances (Litherald, 2014). However, when it comes to the care that people with dementia receive there is still a lack of understanding of the level of satisfaction the person with dementia has of it.
Aim: To identify methods that can be used to measure levels of satisfaction in peole with dementia in relation to the care they receive.
Objectives: To gain an understanding of literature around methods that are used to measure the satisfaction of people with dementia.
Method: A systematic research development process.
