My name is Jane, I haven't work in this field for long but fine it very rewarding. I have been asked to write a sunset program. Can someone please suggest and guide me in the right direction of setting and implementing this program

Hi Jane,
Good for you asking questions! I have been in this work for over 20years & any sunset (assuming this is a 'sundowning behaviour by dementia residents') program. The program should be quiet not noisy, related to the residents era (ie music, readings, poems, stories, mail, craft) or walks gentle movement to music to assist with resting at night...Talk also to family members to ask what their loved one used to do around that time of day at home.....
