Sundowning - Difficult Behavior at the End of the Day

Presenter: Dr. Thomas Weiss
If your caregiving duties become extra challenging in the late afternoon, you're not alone. In fact, many people experience behavioral changes such as confusion, anxiety, agitation, or aggressiveness with increased motor activity like pacing, wandering, resistance to redirection, and increased verbal activity like yelling during this particular time of day. In this webcast Dr. Weiss walked us through this common phenomenon known as "Sundowning" or "Nocturnal Delirium" and helps us understand the underlying causes, risk factors, epidemiology, and management techniques.
