Caregiving Tips:

Managing Sundowning

A person with Alzheimer's may experience increased confusion, anxiety, agitation, pacing and disorientation beginning at dusk and continuing throughout the night. These late-day increases in behavorial problems are often called sundowning. Sundowing can disrupt the body's sleep-wake cycle causing more behavorial problems.

1. Reduce noise and activity levels

2. Plan ahead for calm evenings - plan challenging events like doctor appointments, trips, and bathing in the morning or early afternoon when the person is more alert.

3. Identify triggers - make notes about what happens before sundowning events and try to identify triggers.

4. Plan for light dinners - have a large meal at lunch and keep the evening simple.

5. Keep the home well lit especially in the evenings.

6. Time taking medications - talk to the physician about the best times of day for taking medications.

Support Groups

Support groups are regularly scheduled, free gatherings of persons who are providing care for persons with Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder. The primary purpose of these groups is to provide education and knowledge about the disease and caregiver skills. Groups remind caregivers they are not alone, give them a chance to say what they are feeling in a supportive environment, learn new strategies and resources in the community and foster support networks.

Phys.Org: A team of researchers from Germany and the Netherlands has determined the structure of an amyloid fibril with previously unachieved resolution. The fibrils of the body's own amyloid beta (Aβ) protein are the main constituent of brain protein deposits associated with Alzheimer's. The atomic-level three-dimensional structure elucidated by the scientists reveals previously unknown aspects of the growth of harmful deposits and the effect of genetic risk factors. The results have been published in the renowned journal Science.

Medscape: This scientific commentary refers to 'Cerebrovascular resistance and cerebral amyloidosis: effects on cognitive decline, cortical atrophy and progression to dementia'. Disappointing results from recent trials targeting amyloid as the key pathophysiological process in Alzheimer's disease have increased interest in vascular risk factors as a more tractable target. Considerable data have associated both vascular risk factors, and clinical or imaging evidence of cerebrovascular disease, with Alzheimer's disease risk.
