Dementia symptoms: These tips could help reduce signs of sundowning in the evening

“There are lots of reasons why sundowning occurs,” said Dementia UK.

“As the day goes on, the person with dementia becomes more tired, and this can lead to their symptoms worsening. Hunger, thirst and physical pain can also play a part.

“As darkness falls, street lights come on and people settle in for the evening, some people with dementia become increasingly concerned that they are in the wrong place.”

Sundowning could be less stressful for the patient by taking them into a different room, or by distracting them with music, the charity said.
