my great grandma has vascular dementia. i’m her night person. she’s never been one to get up super early. most days we actually had to go into her bedroom and wake her up. for the last week or so, things have changed. she’s started getting up incredibly early compared to usual. prior she could well sleep in until 10 o’clock, now she’s waking up between 4 and 7 am. is this something you’ve seen? there hasn’t been much of a change to her sleeping habits aside from waking up early.

Check her urine. She may have a UTI. A behavior change like this, so sudden, is bizarre and probably due to something going on in her body. It COULD be just the progression of her dementia, but the fact that it’s so sudden makes me think something is up.
