Excerpt from the Article.
Many people with Alzheimer’s go through a period of heightened agitation, aggression, delusions, paranoia, or wandering during the late afternoon or early evening.
The phenomenon is commonly called Sundowning.
No one knows for sure, but many believe that it is related to our circadian rhythms working in relation to the loss of the bright light of daylight. Others believe that other factors such as tiredness or boredom on the part of the Alzheimer’s care receiver play into the behaviors as well.
