Using key word search about the title or abstract section in the Databases such as Iranmedex, Medlib, SID, Magiran and Google Scholar for Persian article and databases such as Google Scholar, Science direct, PubMed and Proquest Elsevier were searched for English articles using the following keywords in both Persian and English, the search was done. The key words in English include "dignity" and "Dignified care" along with the single words "old people", "elderly" and "aging". After searching, 67 articles were found and finally, 12 articles had the inclusion criteria. Findings showed that respecting human dignity is one of the most important needs of the elderly and must be considered as an important phenomenon in taking care of the elderly, at the community level and health service centers.
