Health Tip: Alzheimer's Affects Sleep
Here's how
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Alzheimer's disease affects many aspects of living, including sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation says the disease can cause:

  • Waking in the middle of the night.
  • Difficulty sleeping in general. Insomnia may be an early sign of Alzheimer's, even before memory loss.
  • Evening confusion from lack of sleep.

Caregivers should maintain a consistent sleep schedule. If that doesn't improve sleep, consult a doctor.
