Dementia and Sundowning (bitesize)

 

What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • I like the word.  I did not know it, but it has encapsulated the evening routine into one coherent event.  This means that my little mind can cope with it as I feel I know what to expect! 

 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • They can get more confused because, simply, at the end of the day, they are getting tired. 
  • This can trigger some interesting behaviours such as the need to go home’ (even though they are home) or just to go.  An ideal time for wandering off. 
  • Natural light can help.  Is their main chair by the window or in a dark corner of the lounge? 

 

What I do: 

  • I just make sure the environment is as stable as possible. 
  • Eating early, when they are not so tired, can make life easier (even if it means a little cake later on!) 
  • Why bathe at the end of the day and make things more complex?  Bathe early in the morning!  It relaxes them. 

 

Author of this blog (Transparency):   

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
