Even trained physicians may have a trouble determining for certain which type of dementia a patient has, and some people experience multiple types of dementia concurrently, which is called “mixed dementia”.

SUNDOWNING occurs most often in the middle stages of Alzheimer’s/other dementias. Studies estimate up to 20 % of persons with Alzheimer's/other dementias will experience increased confusion, anxiety & agitation as the day ends (sun sets).
