Randomised control trial of cognitive training for people with mild to moderate dementia (DiCE)

DiCE is a 12-month randomised controlled trial involving older people with dementia who are encouraged to perform cognitive training for 6 months (with the assistance of their carer). DiCE uses the novel smart±step program, which includes games designed to train specific cognitive functions that are important for everyday tasks, physical function and fall prevention. The aim of the study is to determine whether cognitive exercise improves cognitive and/​or physical performance.
