BDA Scotland publishes BSL video about “sundowning” in dementia

Friday 07 February 2020

Sometimes a person with dementia will behave differently, often in the late afternoon or early evening, which is known as “sundowning”, writes BDA Scotland (the British Deaf Association in Scotland). BDA Scotland has published a video about “sundowning”, in British Sign Language (BSL), to help Deaf people to better understand what “sundowning” is.

This is one of a number of informative videos by BDA Scotland, all of which are available on the association’s Facebook page (follow the below link). The aim is to help Deaf people with dementia and Deaf carers, as well as Deaf members of the general public, to better understand different aspects of dementia.
