Is Your Senior Sleepy by Day and Awake by Night?

We are awake when the sun is up and asleep when it is down, but if your senior loved one seems to have difficulty maintaining this natural schedule, it can be a sign of something else. Have you noticed a senior loved one having difficulty sleeping at night that they end up awake? However, the same senior has difficulty staying awake throughout the day, and they end up sleeping by the afternoon.

It is important to realize that sleep changes as we age. Sleep requirements vary. The amount of sleep we require depends on our profile – age, activities, health conditions, and more. Another measure is the quality of sleep. Sleeping for more than 8 hours may sound enough, but it is a different story if the senior has frequent sleep disturbances throughout the night.

It may be time to discuss your loved one’s sleep problems with themselves and with a professional. In the meantime, take note of the observations you had. For example, the previous and present sleep schedules of your loved one, the medications they are taking, the number of naps they have throughout the day, and so on.
