hello!! i take care of my grandmother who has dementia. she has really good days where she acts almost like how she was before hand and then days where things, to put it bluntly, just don’t seem as bright. we used to think it happened at random but we’re noticing she seems to be really off whenever the weather changes or gets rainy. after a couple days she’s back to normal. is this a normal thing? is there a reason? or is it just just a coincidence?

Just as your mood can change as the weather changes, her cognition and abilities can change with it, too. I always noticed my residents were in worse moods and more confused if it was raining or snowing outside (or just dark outside at all.) I also wonder if she has Dementia with Lewy Bodies, because people with this condition tend to have a lot of fluctuation in their impairment.
