Sleeplessness

Alzheimer’s disease can profoundly alter a person’s sleep patterns, altering the regions of the brain that regulate hormone secretion, appetite and cognitive function.

A disruption in any of these areas may result in restless nights. Having active days can be helpful in inducing good nighttime sleep. Our Memory Day Care program features physical exercise and mentally stimulating activities to minimize nighttime wakefulness and promote restorative sleep. Our Memory Day Care program is open to all.
