My husband with AD has been up until about 2:00 AM the last few nights either looking for something (he doesn’t really know what) in his drawers or closet or just organizing his drawers. He gets quite belligerent if I tell him it’s late and he needs his sleep or that I need my sleep. He tells me it has nothing to do with me and to go to sleep. However he is muttering as he does this and banging around and I certainly am not going to let him be up alone. He does sleep quite late in the AM but has always done that and still slept at night. I’ve been keeping him busy during the day trying to tire him out, and our kids have been visiting a lot as well for the same reason but that doesn’t seem to be working. Last night when he couldn’t find what he thought he was looking for he started to say I just don’t know what’s wrong with me and was quite upset. I lay with him and rubbed his back and talked quietly to him and he finally fell asleep. It doesn’t quite fit the description of sundowning so I’m wondering if this is just a new stage of the disease and if anyone has any suggestions. I know I can try waking him earlier in the morning but to be honest I love that alone time with my coffee and book. I’d do it tho but I’m not sure it will do the trick. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
