    Sundowners are fun...
    During the winter at the memory care place I worked at, people would go crazy almost every night. We had one guy take a chair to the windows trying to get out.

    Full moons, and sundown is always a great time.

    Hmm none of the demensia patients in he care center with my mother were overweight.
    Not saying it cannot be linked but in my observations it is not a major factor.

    You don't say how old she is...

    ... hardening of the arteries also causes dementia...

    ... also, did she drink?...

    ... alcohol is a mild toxin and kills brain cells...

    ... over the years, even social drinking slowly degrades the brain.
