Also known as sundowning, refers to a symptom often associated with the early stages of dementia, including Alzheimer’s. It can also be considered a mood disorder or even a sleep disorder. The exact cause of Sundowners remains a mystery. It was originally believed to be a result of missed day/night light cues a malfunctioning internal biological clock hence the sudden onset at sundown. More recent research has raised the possibility of more organic causes such as drug interactions or stress associated with lower cognitive function.
Caregivers can often anticipate an elderly patient’s bout of sundowners syndrome. A period of irrational thoughts and irritable behavior might begin after the last meal of the day and continue until bedtime. Dealing with a loved one suffering from sundowners syndrome can be very frustrating. Here are several ways of coping with the confusion and irritability.
1) Providing an area of complete privacy for the patient may allow him or her to process information away from visitors and other distractions.
