The Wide Spectrum

Home Page: Welcome to ‘The Wide Spectrum’ dementia education resource website
by: Dr. Gemma MM. Jones

The purpose of this site:
– to help promote good dementia care by providing information, newsletters and supportive educational / teaching materials.
– to be an arena for innovations and ongoing developments in the new field of care-giving in dementia (or dementia care).
– to highlight the less visible aspects of caring- the constant balancing and support required to link the ‘external requirements’ and ‘inner aspects’ of caring well.

All aspects of caring will be acknowledged – the frustrations and failures as well as the achievements and successes. Concepts, guiding principles, current research, and anecdotes will be added to the site regularly via the TAD Newsletters.
