The training is suitable for people with and without training or experience related to dementia.
After you complete the DICE training module, you will:
• Understand dementia and the variety of abilities and challenges of people living with dementia.
• Feel more confident communicating with people living with dementia in an effective and respectful way.
• Understand the rights of people living with dementia for access and inclusion in physical activity programs and facilities.
• Identify ways you can better support a person living with dementia to participate in your physical activity programs and be included in your facility.
• Connect with other resources and articles that will deepen your understanding of dementia and the role of exercise in living well with dementia.
