Janet Rich Pittman is on a mission to help people fight the effects of aging by powering up their brains. As a Licensed Dementia Administrator and Certified Dementia Practitioner, she has seen firsthand what dementia can do to its victims and their families—and her years of research have taught her that it’s possible to prevent dementia and reclaim your brain.

She is the co-founder of Gulf Coast Dementia Services, a nonprofit dedicated to advocating for senior health, and served as the Vice President of its board of directors. She is also the co-founder and co-facilitator of the Alzheimer’s Dementia Support Group of South Alabama, for which she was trained and vetted by the National Alzheimer’s Association. She teamed up with the South Alabama Regional Planning Commission to establish the first ever Alzheimer’s/Dementia Hotline of South Alabama, a free consultation service for patients and families in need.
