to illustrate just how big this problem is, there's an estimated 48,000 people living with alzheimer's in southeastern wisconsin alone. half haven't even been diagnosed yet. and nearly all of them will need care. as fox6 i reports -- maybe not the kind of care they are currently getting. the baby boomers are aging. people are living longer than ever before. and as a result, more people are getting alzheimer's -- a form of dementia. figuring out how to care for these people is complicated. but what you're about to see might make you wonder -- is it a crime just to
9:14 pm
-- it's important to know what step you're on and where you're going.but in the dance of life, what's coming next can be totally unpredictable. 'that was just the beginning.' her kids say she was a great mom. and by all accounts, shannon wittal was a fiercely independent woman. "she supported herself, us kids, had her own life and her own activities. paid her own bills, haa finances.'a few years ago her behavior started to change. "she wasn't sleeping at night. she'd be up wandering around."her family chalked it up to old age. "she still could recognize people, still could figure out what season it was, when christmas was coming, all of that. now, three years later, it's a whole different story."shannon, in her early seventies, was
9:15 pm
ballroom dancer who once memorized complicated dance routines now can't even read a clock. 'she can no longer read a calendar, read dates. doesn't know what day it is."her family sent her to an assisted living facility in waukesha county -- one that advertised it specialized in dementia care. and then, on march 25, 2016, a nurse called 911. 10:43:13 elderly woman with dementia, was handcuffed and put in the back of a squad car after she slapped a caretaker. 'it was just like, oh my gosh, how can this be happening?' it's called an emergency detention or emergency protective placement. a caregiver calls 911. the police take the elderly person to a hospital or a mental health facility. but only when they are
9:16 pm
'why people put older adults in handcuffs - ill never know. it's a practice the alzheimer's association of southeastern wisconsin has been working to eliminate. 'there are other ways of intervening.' police were called on shannon because the 73-year-old -- who had a urinary tract infection at the time -- got aggressive with nursing home staff. brenda says caretakers at the nusi trained, should have been able to calm her mom down. 'people arent trained to handle dementia patients properly and when theyre not handled properly it causes aggression.' 'they utterly failed him.' caregivers couldn't calm down 100- year-old ken leque, either. 'all of a sudden we had gotten these calls that he was being transported that he had hit one of the hospice staff."the nursing home called 911. police cuffed him and put him in the back of a squad
9:17 pm
somebody do that?' crieshe was detained in the name of getting him help. 'and i did not know where he went.'leque was transferred in and out of 14 facilities in three months. she shakes her head, speechless the bruises up and down his arms proof he had been restrained by the very people tasked with taking care of him. 'this should not be happening. these are th that we walk on, and this is not how we should be treating them.'but they are still being treated this way -- five years after this very issue was highlighted in milwaukee county. 'it was awful.' richard peterson became the face of the problem in 2010.he was 85-years old with late stage dementia when he was handcuffed and bounced around from facility to
9:18 pm
found him tied to a wheel chair, no jacket, no shoes. he died soon after. 'something really, really needs to change.'a taskforce met. a report was written. petersen's family spoke out about their experience hoping it would never happen again. 'there are more people like my dad. my dad is not alone." six years later, our happening. elderly patients with dementia are still being handcuffed.sometim es even spending the night in jail. 'its like a guaranteed way to make it worse.' we reviewed hundreds of 9-1-1 calls from nursing homes to see just how often police are called to deal with dementia patients.we found dozens of reports where elderly people
9:19 pm
"causing problems" -- and nursing home staff -- "frustrated by their behavior" -- wanted them "relocated" to other they called the cops. you might think handcuffing such vulnerable people is not the way to handle these situations. the experts agree. "it just doesnt feel right. handcuffs are for punishing people, or for people who have done something wrong and you can't trust them. they're not for dad who is having a medical issue."rob gundermann, public policy director for the alzheimer's an says people with dementia can feel trapped -- and often can't verbalize how they're feeling. "and you reach the point where you can't ignore them anymore because they're acting out, they're doing things you just can't ignore." 'it just snowballs...because nobodys handling them properly." so what are staff members supposed to do if a dementia patient gets out of control?experts say they should be trained in how to calm the patient down. and if they're caring for
9:20 pm
first place. 'if you say you can care for people with dementia you need to be able to care for people with dementia." 'i know that i cant change things for my mom." after brenda's 73-year-old mom was handcuffed, she was put in the back of a squad car and taken to a facility more than an hour away. 'she didnt understand that they were trying to help her. she literally thought that she was in jail."brenda says her mom deserves better. and she shouldn't be punished just because she got old. "i just hope it can change have to go through what we had to go through. sniffles you might be wondering what the nursing homes and assisted living facilities have to say about this. we tried to talk to industry leaders about the challenges they face, but nobody got back to us. one of the things we've heard through our reporting is that nursing homes and assisted living communities have to keep everyone safe by
9:21 pm
sometimes have no other choice than to call police. police then make a decision on whether to take them. there's certainly liability issues at play and facilities say they can get in trouble for keeping someone who might have challenging behaviors, especially if they are violent. other places tell us calling police is a last resort -- other places say they never call police. do they really have to be handcuffed though? that's a liabil they tell me anytime someone's in a squad car, they have to be cuffed -- no matter how old they are. dementia advocates say there are other ways -putting someone in an ambulance instead for example -- but that gets expensive. there is some progress being made. some counties are working on mobile crisis units that can be called to come calm someone down, so they don't have to be taken away from their home. but that's all still a work in
9:22 pm
if your family is struggling to figure out how to care for a loved one with dementia -- we have a ton of resources on our website you can also call the help line you see on the screen right now 24 hours a day. that's 800-272-3900. still to come -- her car was stolen. she found it, called police but it was taken again before police showed up. tonight though -- her story has a different ending and you'll see it only on fox6. plus, more crime equals a need for more police. at least that's what some milwaukee aldermen claim. why the common council president is

9:32 pm
car 's pretty important since she's an uber driver. but she doesn't think there's any way way she can keep it. i dont, you know? its creepy. people were in it, its a violated feeling. its creepy. marie says she's now working with the car dealer to see if she can arrange some kind of trade-in. she confirms she has been talking to the captain in district five, adding she still wants to know why it took 40 minutes for police to respond. aj bayatpour fox 6 news. alderman on milwaukees south side want more officers to keep their neighborhoods safe. about 220-thousand people live in the five aldermanic districts on the citys south side.. currently there are 215 officer assigned to district 2 and 6 - and some aldermen say thats simply not enough. they say emergency response times are lacking and patrols are minimal.. so they're asking milwaukee police chief ed flynn to reassign
