Quick Suggestions on Handling Sundown Syndrome
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.
Turn something funny on the television and sit down with a bowl of ice cream to distract them.
