Health Tip: If Dementia Causes Sleep Problems

Establish consistent sleep and wake times

(HealthDay News) -- Sleep problems are common in people with dementia, but there are things caregivers can do to help their charges get a peaceful night's rest.

The American Academy of Family Physicians mentions these tips to help people with dementia sleep better:

  • Create a consistent bedtime routine and morning wake time.
  • Create obvious ways to tell the time of day, such as placing clocks in visible areas and opening blinds.
  • Limit the amount of caffeine, sugar and junk food in the person's diet.
  • Encourage daily exercise early in the day.
  • Cut down on napping.
  • Create a peaceful bedroom environment.
  • Make sure to control any pain.
