Tips for reducing sundowning

Sundowning is a symptom you might see in the moderate stages of Alzheimer’s. It is confusion that may worsen in late afternoon and early evening.



Tips for reducing sundowning: -Make early evening a quiet time of day; play soft music to create a calmness. -Reduce background noise, including TV which can sometimes be upsetting. -Limit day time napping. If going to nap; keep them short. Plan for exposure to light during the day to encourage nighttime sleepiness. -Open blinds during the day and let the sun shine in! -Close the blinds at dusk to minimize shadows and the confusion they may cause. -Turn lights on and always reassure your loved one they are safe.
