In almost every UK care setting person centred care will be written into their mission statements; however, the care of people with dementia is not always person centred as organisations do not make the necessary cultural shift from the traditional approach to care. The objectives of this study are to explore and define what person centred dementia care is, to explore the literature surrounding dementia care with an emphasis on person centred dementia care in various care settings and to examine the implementation and the methods used in evaluating the effectiveness of person centred dementia care. This literature based exploration systematically reviews the literature and critiques the literature by using critical appraisal tools. Many reoccurring themes have emerged that indicate that staff within the care sector are providing person centred dementia care, however most staff are providing care from the more traditional approach. The analysis of the literature identifies the complexity of person centred dementia care. There are many recommendations for further academic research in Health and Social Care. This study identifies that there is a great need for further research into ways organisations can train their staff in order to implement person centred dementia care. There is a great need to explore the factors which affect the implementation of pcdc and the reliability of the evaluative tools used to evaluate pcdc.
