Webinar: Sleep - The Challenge of Aging | AL & SNF 

Thursday, December 3, 2020


Do we accept that disrupted sleep is “normal” in the elderly?  While it is widely accepted that elderly residents have trouble sleeping, what is understood about the nature of those sleep difficulties?  Is disrupted sleep the cause or the effect of cognitive decline, heart disease or of challenging behaviors? 

This webinar will discuss specific sleep challenges in the elderly as well as appropriate staff responses and treatment options.  Specific discussion on sleep culture in our residential environments, and how we can improve our environments for sleep promotion will be included.
