I find after my day of housework I am exhausted by 4 pm and ready for bed by 7pm. Anyone experiencing this could u share. Feeling so alone. My spouse gets so tired of me being tired so early in the evening!!
I am inclined to agree with u If I walk the dog and do light housework plus cook dinner.......this is all routine I am weary ....so I have discovered that if I rest for about an hour in the afternoon I feel better.....give it a try.....rest up as u need to
Yes it’s called Sundowners Syndrome. Something to do with the Sun.
@A MyOsteoTeam Member yes your friend should be in secure care. My mother had dementia too and she kept running away (as her mother had died there) and she was put in the secure home and couldn’t get out.
It’s an awful ailment

Yes I do feel worse around 4 pm. Was told by a few Nurses that a lot of people suffer more with their Dementia around 4pm & they do have a name for it. They call it Sundowners Syndrome & it affects the Elderly more. I first noticed it with a elderly lady friend of mine with Dementia. Had to be watched closely as she’d leave the Aged Care Facility & cross a very busy road, she used to go to a house across the road knock on their door as she thought it was her house poor lady we were very worried about her doing this as it was a Very Busy road & thought she may be hit by a car. Every day a few minutes before 4pm she would & others become very restless I to have more pain. Hospital Nurses also noticed the difference to patients they become more restless.
Yes, i do because we try to do too much in the morning with doing all our chores and getting supper together no wonder we are pooped. Barbara 🤗
I'd say you're just 'spent' by that time & need to rest. I'm same. As soon as I eat I'm out for the count now. The more I do the more spent I am by afternoon sometimes if I've done a lot in the morning I'll fall into a deep sleep by 1pm for up to an hour. So you're not alone. Do have bloods checked of course to rule out issues that need changing. Berocca boost with guarana can give a couple hours extra 'go' taken late afternoon for those of us flaking out at teatime.
I get so fatigued just going to store for groceries, don’t sleep well, I don’t sleep afternoon or evening. No energy, just very fatigued and sore by 4pm

Yes I shattered all the time I have heated pad which helps alot .plus I use lavender as well. When I go to bed I have down time I listen to music
I have the same issue. I can probably do some house work until about 12, then either I get really weak, fatigued and severe back pain. I end up going to bed early also
