Did you know you have a greater chance of dying from sleep deprivation than smoking, high blood pressure and heart disease combined? Institutionalization of the elderly, high mortality risks and obesity are also linked with insomnia. “Any American making a resolution to lose weight….should probably consider a parallel commitment for getting more sleep,” said Michael Thorpy, M.D., director of the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center in New York. While this information is useful, family caregivers who care for their elderly loved ones at home in addition to a regular work schedule often suffer from insomnia. Dementia comes with sleep disorders, and with Sundowner’s Syndrome, sleeping problems are much more severe. A-1 Home Care in Century City offers overnight care for six to twelve hours a night, depending on your needs and preferences.
