Dementia Care in the Home

If you are providing care for a family member living with dementia and at times feel frustrated or overwhelmed, the DICE Approach may help. Family caregivers can use the DICE approach to understand and respond to the variety of situations that occur when providing daily care to someone living with dementia.

The DICE Approach can help caregivers identify the causes of behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), develop new skills, improve communication, reduce unplanned services and hospitalizations, and more.
