The goal of the Dementia-Inclusive Choices for Exercise (DICE) project is to support the design, content and delivery of exercise programs so that they meet the needs and preferences of persons living with dementia and their care partners.
The DICE project brings together 22 people and 10 organizations to improve the number, quality and variety of exercise opportunities available to people living with dementia.
For People Living with Dementia
These tools and resources will help you to increase your knowledge and confidence regarding exercise.
For Exercise Providers
A training module, tools and resources for exercise providers, sport coaches or recreational leaders will help you to support people living with dementia in exercise, and extend your learning.
The Dementia-Inclusive Choices for Exercise (DICE) team was assembled in 2016. We have developed evidence-based resources to improve the number and quality of physical activity opportunities available to people living with dementia. These include a training module that prepares exercise providers (as well as recreational leaders and sport coaches) with knowledge and skills necessary to engage with, accommodate the needs of, and guide exercise among people with dementia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
