Sundowning

Since Roz brings up a lot of different difficult topics up in this book, I’ve decided to focus on a few topics to highlight resources and interesting articles. The first topic I want to touch on is Sundowning.

Mayo Clinic – Sundowning: Late-Day Confusion

Alzheimer’s Association – Sleep Issues and Sundowning 

CBC – Sundowners and Their Exhausted Caregivers

The Atlantic – An Overnight Nursing Home for Dementia Patients

New York Times – Behind the Scenes: Capturing Mental Twilight

Intentional Caregiver – My Experiences with “Sundowning”
