Welcome to everyone challenged with dementia in any way and an intro to Dementia 911, a site built around gaining perspective and building confidence for any caregiver or family member ready to learn.
Hello, my name is Walter Hansen and I have worked in and around the dementia challenge for over 17 years as a first responder and medical professional. I love being able to share my experiences and time with like minded people in search for a better quality of life even when faced with challenging circumstances. I created the Dementia 911 Basic Course as an introduction to the concepts around the philosophy of keeping the dementia patient out of the emergency management system when possible. And through these concepts, we learn to be better prepared for what is in our future which also allows you to plan for situations rather than always be sitting by the phone waiting for the "dreaded" phone call.
