Some people living with dementia have a condition call Sundowning. Sundowning is a symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It’s also known as “late-day confusion.” If someone you care for has dementia, their confusion and agitation may get worse in the late afternoon and evening. In comparison, their symptoms may be less pronounced earlier in the day.

Your loved one is most likely to experience sundowning if they have mid-stage to advanced dementia. Each person has different triggers for sundowning. To help identify your loved one’s triggers, use a journal or smartphone app to track their daily activities, environments, and behaviours. Look for patterns to learn which activities or environments seem to make their symptoms worse. Once you know their triggers, it will be easier to avoid situations that promote agitation and confusion.

Sundowning or medical supervision may be a reason you require extra help through the night.

Overnight shift

An Overnight Shift is when a Caregiver stays either in the room of the person who needs Care or very close by. They stay awake through the night to either monitor the person's medical equipment or for some other type of Care.

Sleep Over

During a sleep over, the Caregiver may also sleep, only waking (it may be several times) to re-settle the client or take them to the toilet.  The Caregiver will need their own room for this type of Care.
