Curran (1996a) found that in generic day centres people with dementia were often not accepted or were marginalised, and that insufficient attention was given to their needs. 114–115). Culbert stressed that: The main consideration is not whether mixed centres are more economically viable or specialist centres more expert, but how the needs of confused elderly people with behavioural difficulties can be provided with day care in a manner which promotes their dignity and acknowledges their worth. 54–55) noted the tendency for provision of separate services which had been promoted by the communities themselves and welcomed by the statutory sector.
