As a group, older people are the highest users of health and social care services and yet their voices are rarely heard and little evidence exists of the impact of their involvement on the quality of care or the structuring of services (Cook and Klein 2005, Postle, Wright and Beresford 2005). A signiﬁcant challenge to an evolving user involvement agenda is how high-level users of welfare services can be supported to have a voice in this process. g. Barnes and Bennett 1998). Only recently has a debate on how to balance safeguarding with empowerment begun to inﬂuence dementia care practice.
The challenge for such participatory approaches lies in how well they are able to take account of difference and avoid creating normative categories of service users. All users are not equally well placed to participate, and face barriers to involvement that are comparable to those when accessing services. Yet there is limited commentary on how individuals are recruited or engaged by participation mechanisms. A review by Tait and Lester (2005) found that most mental health user groups are small, poorly funded and non-representative of minority groups or communities; while Webb (2008) has observed that where service user groups are active they are usually self-selecting and their forms of accounting to a wider public are often uncertain.
