The progressive loss of abilities in dementia often results in family members caring for their loved ones as the disease advances. Studies show that when family and health care providers approach care as a partnership, better outcomes occur. The overarching goal of the Family Involvement in Care (FIC) and Partnerships in Caring programs is to help families and providers work together to provide the highest quality of person-centered care possible.
