  • Keeping your loved one active during the day may help reduce sundown syndrome episodes.

  • Close the curtains and turn as many lights on as possible before dusk. It may also alleviate stress on the caregiver to serve dinner before dusk.

  • Keep the environment calm and relaxing, as the goal is to have a smooth, soft landing into bedtime.

  • Maintain patience.

  • Turn something funny on the television and sit down with a bowl of ice cream to distract them.
