  • Daytime activity is important—keep your loved one active by going outside, talking walks, finding a day center, or hiring someone to engage.

  • Routines are key to people with dementia. Consider having an evening happy hour or herbal tea.

  • Take a few moments to sit with your loved one and provide reassurance.

  • Check with a physician regarding medication.

  • If your loved one is angry at bedtime they could be expressing a need. Check to see if your loved one needs to use the bathroom.
