Sleep Study

Educating Caregivers to Help Improve Sleep in Persons with Dementia

The purpose of this sleep study manual is to describe the procedures and format for implementing a caregiver-focused intervention aimed at reducing sleep disturbances among persons with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other dementing illnesses. The program includes a non-pharmacologic intervention delivered to caregivers in a group format with individual reinforcement, and aims to improve sleep through bright light exposure, exercise, and sleep hygiene practices.

This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $3.5M with 25% financed with nongovernmental sources.
