This chapter discusses how the way services are currently focused reflects the values associated with particular perceptions of quality. It offers an alternative way to understand quality of life and care from the person with dementia's perspective. The chapter builds on existing work and offers an approach that locates quality in the relationships people have with those around them, and in the society in which they live, as an alternative to an efficiency-based and individualistic way of assessing services.
