In Spring of 2018, we had a unique opportunity to bring Dr. Jones from London, England to our Vancouver community to share her wisdom, insights, and well-researched approaches in caring for persons with dementia and their families.
Dr. Jones developed a unique program for health-care professionals, family carers, caregivers and anyone involved with the provision of compassionate care. She authored many articles and books including Alzheimer’s Cafes and Why They Work and About Dementia for Families with Children.
She taught week long training sessions extensively using a multi-sensory approach in the UK, Netherlands, and Canada and is a sought-after speaker at national and international conferences and forums.
Her web site is: www.thewidespectrum.com
Dr. Jones is a graduate of UBC School of Nursing. In recognition of her outstanding contribution to Alzheimer care she was presented with the Award of Distinction by UBC School of Nursing in May 2016.

The Centre for Healthy Aging Transitions developed out of an exploration of Older Adult Resourcing in 2012. As partners together – Beulah Garden Homes Society, Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, and CAREY, – we continue to give a home for CHAT, seed funding, staff time, dialogue, prayerful discernment, and creative initiative.
It is our hope to provide a faith-informed approach to healthy aging and life’s transitions through seminars, denominational workshops, credit courses and this website hub for offering resources and connecting with each other. We believe that these will lead to help and transformation for us and through us to the world around us.
Would you consider supporting this? Let’s continue the conversation and be a resource for the generations today and those to follow. Thank you.
