Home Care in Penrose, CO
At Visiting Angels® Pueblo, our home care helps Penrose area seniors diagnosed with the disorder. We provide the service local families need to keep their loved ones at home and avoid the traumatic move to an assisted care facility. Caring for a relative with dementia presents all sorts of challenges. One particularly difficult issue is the phenomenon of 'sundowning', which refers to the tendency for seniors with dementia to experience stress, unrest, and confusion after sunset.
The exact cause of this side effect is unknown, but we know it is likely related to several factors, including exhaustion and disorientation.
As a supportive family member, you can help minimize this issue. The most important thing is ensuring your loved one gets as much rest as possible. To help with this, we recommend creating a schedule for meal times, bedtime, and waking up. This will help them stay on a normal routine and limit potential issues with their internal clock.
Other options to reduce night-time discomfort include frequent walks during the day-time, reduced evening stimulation, eating lighter dinners, and consuming fewer substances like caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol.
