The Dice Approach™ Manual: Internationally renowned and a must-have for any caregiver for quick reference
There were an estimated 44 million people with Alzheimer’s or some form of Dementia worldwide and as of 2016 and about 6 million in the U.S. alone. It is estimated that one to four family members act as caregivers for each individual with Alzheimer’s disease. In 2016, 15.9 million family and friends provided 18.2 billion hours of unpaid assistance to those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in the U.S., a contribution to the nation valued at $230.1 billion. Those numbers will increase rapidly as baby boomers age. Since 2009, The Program for Positive Aging has provided evidence-based behavioral training for caregivers internationally proven by several grant-based studies of home caregivers and facility caregivers. With updates based on feedback from these studies the revised The DICE Approach™ manual is the go-to reference guide. Its 124 color pages provide expert training in The DICE Approach™ (Describe, Investigate, Create and Evaluate) and provides immediately accessible information caregivers depend upon. The DICE Approach™ manual will not only tell you about commonly used medications and how to build and interact with your support team, it provides deep information about how caregivers can care for themselves during the chaos and stress of caring for others.
This is the must-have guidebook for anyone who cares for, or knows someone who cares for, patients with Alzheimer’s or Dementia is available separately here: http://bit.ly/2S1NNNG
