How Our Dementia Care in Bethany Helps with Sundowning
Sundowning is an increase in confusion, agitation, anxiety, and restlessness in the evening hours. Although the exact cause of it is unknown, sundowning is most often found in individuals with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. It can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, and disorientation.
If your loved one is experiencing sundowning, here are a few tips. The first is to encourage a daily routine for them. Staying on track throughout the day and separating daytime activities from nighttime ones can help. You can also take note of any triggers. These can include drinking caffeine, overstimulation, and outside stress from others.
