In relation to eldercare, user-centeredness is positively understood in relation to activeness, self-governing, free choice, democratic, influence etc. However, different rationales in the formation of society, load user-centeredness with numerous meanings. The rationales of the state, the civil society, the marked and the individual have their own interest to advocate for the process of user-centeredness. As long as nobody is experiencing a disagreement, there is no reason for protesting. However, this paper tries to reflect the consequence of a system that value user-centeredness, neither in a positive or negative way, but to understand the different approaches to user-centeredness.
