Elderly Sleep Deprivation

by Deah on Thursday, April 11, 2019 8:10 AM

Sleep is a varied issue for many older adults. I remember my mother-in-law had trouble falling asleep. She could get a decent night sleep once she got to sleep. Even getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night would make it hard for her to get back to sleep. My dad does not seem to be able to get his nights and days straight. He’s up all night and asleep most of the day. Then there is mother, who goes to bed fairly early, goes to sleep right away and is able to sleep well into the next morning.

Bone Tired

by lori paterno on Thursday, September 12, 2013 11:40 AM

There are different levels of tired.  My teenage daughter complains that she is "tired."  But, is she really aware of deeper levels of tired?  I don't think so.  She can seriously sleep in, go to bed whenever she wants, and generally has few real obligations or physical demands.  Caregivers often have a chronic tired that is much deeper than the average weariness.
