Dr. Mark Carlson presents with co-presenter Bruce Meleski, PhD
At any age, sleep is important. In older adults, a good night’s sleep is extremely important in order to keep our minds alert and our bodies healthy. It is a common misconception that sleep needs decline with age. In fact, research shows that our sleep needs remain constant throughout adulthood. As we age, changes in sleep patterns can shift, leaving seniors vulnerable to falls, chronic health conditions and generally feeling sleepy during the day. This session will explore the common factors affecting sleep patterns and habits and the science behind it. Dr. Meleski, a sleep specialist, will provide recommendations for improving the length and quality of your sleep.
