The PPA recieves funding from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund

DICE logoDr. Helen Kales and the PPA team recently received funding from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund for the project tiled “Enhancing Michigan Workforce Capacity for Behavioral Dementia Care Using the DICE Approach (MiDICE).”

The goal of this project is to train formal and informal caregivers of people with dementia in DICE (Describe, Investigate, Create, Evaluate), an innovative, evidence-based approach to assessing and managing the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia. Over the course of a one-year period, they will train 200 caregivers and then, incorporating their input, create an online training program likely to achieve long-term impact on caregiver knowledge and confidence in behavioral management of dementia.
