Three Tips for Better Sleep

By Christopher Dietrich, Vice President of Growth and Development

three tips for better sleep

Sadly, sleep disturbances and Alzheimer’s often go hand in hand.

As dementia progresses in severity, so do irregular sleeping patterns. The types of sleeping disturbances our doctors have seen in patients with dementia include insomnia, awakenings during the night, difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, and premature morning awakenings.

A good night’s sleep is vital for optimal health, and these types of sleep disturbances can take a toll on both the sufferer and the caregiver.

A few tips from our sleep doctors at Rezilir Health for better rest:

1. Stick to a Bedtime Schedule
2. Participate in Physical Activity
3. Limit Day Time Naps

Having a consistent sleep schedule will help reinforce your body’s sleep-wake cycle. This means that you should go to bed and get out of bed simultaneously every day. Keeping the same schedule over the weekends will also help.

Participating in physical activity every day can help with your sleep, as long as it’s not too close to bedtime. In addition, taking that physical activity routine outdoors proves to be more beneficial as the sunlight helps with your circadian rhythm.

Naps can be great for brain health, although excessive napping or prolonged nap times can interfere with a regular sleep cycle. Make sure to limit it down to 30 minutes or less each day.

Here at Rezilir Health in Florida, we offer treatment plans that are 100% customized specifically to you. Whether you’re looking into improving ways to get a good night’s sleep or if your elderly parent is starting to suffer from dementia, we help keep your brain healthy.

Doctors who treat dementia may have you or your loved one go through a diagnostic process to help determine the specific cause for memory loss.
