Hints To Handle Sundowning?

Hints To Handle Sundowning?

Last night, for the first time my husband was sundowning and it was alarming! Need help in calming him down or something to distract him. He tells everyone he is not interested in anything! Period!

I agree about using CBD for sundowning. I give my husband 1/2 gummy CBD in the morning and 1/2 gummy around 3pm. I get the lowest mg. This has helped so much.

Dr gave my husband meds for sun downing. Very small amount but helped with the anxiety. Very afraid of the dark

I let my mom sort of vent for a couple of minutes then switch to putting on music she loves a and singing with her, or looking through old photo albums and letting her tell her version of them.

Please talk to his dr asap....there are Rx meds to decrease the common sundowning confusion and agitation but some folks have had good results with CBD oil for calming

My H sundowns starting around 2 in the afternoon many days! And he never feels like doing anything but eat and sleep. I walk away for a little while but still within earshot. That gives him a chance to calm down. Then I come back after @ 5-10 minutes and offer him some cold water or seltzer (insert what your H likes here). He usually wants to lie down then to escape his misery. Fine with me, gives me a break, too! Hope this helps a little. Good luck. 💗
