"To sleep, perchance to..." avoid Alzheimer's?

11 posts in this topic

I didn't get restorative sleep all the years DH was ill....it was like having a 220# newborn in the house who slept in my bed! In the past two years things are improving although slowly. I've added a cool mist humidifier and Himalayan pink salt crystal lamp to the bedroom...the dark circles under my eyes have faded significantly, and I bought a new bed. Also, I don't wake as often during the night....I had a solid night's sleep in all those years, now I'm down to once or twice regularly.

Hello all,

Seems like this is an old thread, but I think that I can post here instead of creating a new one. My grandmother has Alzheimer's and she has sleeping trouble. I've tried almost everything that I could do, but I'm not able to give her a peaceful sleep. I recently happened to read an article which was quite interesting.. I will soon try blue light therapy and bright light therapy for my grandmother. Hope this'll help her out. Has anyone tried this?? Will this give a positive result?? If you know any other techniques, please let me know. Thanks in advance. 

Note from RoseRed135: If anyone would like to see the article mentioned, it's called "How Blue Lights Help Sleepless Alzheimer's Patients" and is on the C-Care website.

I rarely sleep during the day. My Sis, on the other hand, can sleep the clock around....

I am a napper! Couldn't make it through the day without it. I prefer to take a brief, 45 -75 minute nap, to pouring another cup of tea or coffee. I like to rise early to catch the early morning sunshine and keep the SAD away, but then I usually wind down about an hour before noon. So I take a nap, then have a light lunch. If it's a really long daylight day, say sundown at 8:30, I may take another half an hour nap around 2:30. For me, it's like pulling into a gas station. I run out of gas without my nap and get grouchy and depressed because my mind is out of energy. I guess each person's solution is different.

When I nap during the day I sometimes fall into such a deep, relaxing sleep-
