Within our years of providing qualified senior care, our team has identified dementia sleep disorders as a common concern among memory care residents and home care recipients. These very sleep concerns often become the determining factor when opting for assisted living from a facility such as Poet’s Walk. Between our expert staff and innovative care technology, we are suited to handle these sleep issues from the get-go so your loved ones can stay safe and healthy.
A Closer Look at Dementia Sleep Disorders
Dementia sleep disorders come in a variety of manifestations and the caregivers of Poet’s Walk have experience with them all. One of the most common concerns is dementia and excessive sleep, often a result of depression or as a side effect of a memory care medication. If left unchecked, excessive sleep can lead to additional health complications, such as inflammation or diabetes. On the other side of the coin, late night disorientation can lead to insomnia, which in turn, can result in daytime irritability or a lack of concentration and focus.
Monitoring Senior Sleep Conditions with Innovative Technology
Committed to the overall health and well-being of our seniors, our caregivers utilize an innovative piece of wellness technology called HealthSense. For those with dementia and other memory disorders, it can often be difficult to communicate changes in health that occur from day to day or night to night. In many cases, they may not even be aware there is a problem. With HealthSense, our seniors can be monitored on a 24-hour basis and our caregivers can be alerted in the event of a change in habit. This allows our team to intervene before a small change becomes a worrisome problem.
