Waking during the Night

Think about the ligthing conditions that are best for the person living with dementia that will help orientate them if they do wake up at night:

  • Movement sensors are easy to buy to light up the path to the toilet. 
  • Put night lights in the bedroom, hallway and bathroom. 
  • Switch off outside lights during the night, it may encourage the person with dementia to wander.
  • If you are a carer and sleep in a different room, you can have a movement sensor buzzer under your pillow.
