Now, 10 years later, the Foundation continues to expand its programs and services to assist caregivers and those with dementia through:

  • Arts & Alzheimer’s - an art and music participation program for seniors with dementia still living at home with their caregivers stimulating minds… supporting caregivers.
  • Personal Wellbeing Initiative - a program to educate, consult on and assist in selecting the best, most appropriate technologies for persons with dementia, their caregivers and families supporting independence, enhancing safety, providing peace of mind.

Current Board Members


Twyla Johnson  

Twyla Johnson moved to Victoria in 2009 after living in the United States for 15 years. Although she is new to the Victoria area, Twyla was raised in British Columbia and grew up in the beautiful Similkameen Valley. Her first career was in Drafting and Graphic Design, but in pursuit of a dream she went on to study nursing at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.

Aside from two years working at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, the majority of Twyla’s nursing experience has been in Public Health. She has worked for Health Departments in both New York and Maryland State. Working just outside Washington, DC, after 9/11, Twyla received extensive training on Bioterrorism, Incident Command Structure, and Emergency Preparedness. In coordination with several County Agencies, Twyla was involved in the organization and operation of one of the largest drive-thru immunization clinics in the US, which immunized over 4,000 residents in 4 hours.

Twyla is now the Director of Operations for the Victoria and Duncan branches of We Care Home Health Services. Through her work with We Care, Twyla regularly interacts with families affected by Alzheimer’s disease, a disease that has touched her own family as well.

Alexandra Rickards  

Alexandra Rickards moved to Victoria with her husband, Ron, from Toronto in August 2006 to enjoy retirement from a 25-year career as a successful real estate salesperson. While her formal education included primary teacher training at U.B.C. and French studies at Universite d’Aix-Marseilles in Aix-En-Provence, France, she found that selling homes for and to people the most satisfying of her many lives.

Alex’s volunteer work has included working with Big Brothers of Toronto and the Canadian Cancer Society. She is now enjoying the beauty of Vancouver Island, reading and the physical fitness part of her retirement lifestyle. Alex acquired a personal experience with Alzheimer’s disease when her Father became ill and died with the disease in 1999. Three female cousins also had dementia and died with the disease. Alex is fully aware of how exhausting giving care to a sufferer of A.D. can be and the need for care for the caregivers!

Bob Russell  

Bob Russell (B.A. Hons, M.A., M.P.A.). A 17 year resident of Victoria, Bob is familiar with the challenges families face as care givers having provided care for both parents and a grand parent.

After moving to the Island, he founded two successful telecommunications companies and continues as President of one of them. Throughout both his public and private sector careers he has tended to be involved in start-ups and thus hopes to bring his experiences and expertise in that regard to the Foundation during its formative stages.
