Establishing rituals and adhering to daily routines is another crucial part of living with Lewy body dementia. Having a routine has a normalizing effect and can help the patient focus and feel like they have more control over their lives. Chaos and disorganization can be a trigger, so maintaining a sense of normalcy and duty to a schedule is important. The negative effects and behaviors associated with Lewy body dementia tend to worsen at night, so establishing a nighttime and bedtime routine should be a high priority. Calming rituals before bed can make sleep better, as opposed to watching television, and leaving soft night lights on can assist with preventing disorientation and panic.
