Dementia is a term for several diseases that affect memory, thinking, and the ability to perform daily activities. Sadly, the illness gets worse over time. According to the World Health Organization, more than 55 million people have dementia worldwide. Nearly 10 million new cases are diagnosed each year. 

Many families try to deal with Alzheimer’s and dementia care challenges while keeping loved ones at home. The home caregiver role can become overwhelming and very stressful.

Meet Dr. Govind Bharwani who is a nationally recognized expert in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. His work has received six national awards for its impact on reducing medications for agitation and challenging behaviors.

Using his background in the science of cognitive ergonomics and neuroscience research, Dr. Bharwani authored and published a series of 30 booklets specifically for caregivers. Each 24-page booklet focuses on the various types, stages, and phases of dementia. They offer practical techniques for home caregivers to improve the quality of care for people with dementia and to reduce the stress on home caregivers.

His non-pharmacological approaches can dramatically help people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease be less prone to becoming confused, agitated, and withdrawn.

Dr. Bharwani has received the following six national awards for Alzheimer’s and Dementia care: 

2011 Dorland Health Silver Crown Award for Alzheimer’s Care
2011 AMDA Foundation/Pfizer Quality Improvement Award
