A tool that caregivers can use to understand and respond to a variety of situations that occur when providing daily care to someone with dementia.

The dementia professional will meet with you at your home to teach you the steps for using The DICE Approach along with follow ups to see how it's working.

Once the problem is solved, you can use The DICE Approach in the future as behavioral challenges arise.
