This chapter discusses the way in which the system world attempts to meet people's needs when living and dying with dementia. It looks at a number of models of service provision that have been developed in response to the perceived inevitability of the physical and cognitive decline that accompanies dementia. The chapter also provides an account of care for people with dementia, including that provided by clinical medicine and person-centred care.

Keywords:   system world, dementia, service provision, cognitive decline, clinical medicine, person-centred care
