Managing Elderly Insomnia for Caregivers

a-1 home care

When you are a caregiver that provides round the clock care, one of the issues you may have to deal with include helping an Elderly individual deal with Insomnia and sleep related issues.  Insomnia can be caused by a variety of factors included medication, anxiety/depression, chronic pain, and sedentary lifestyles that lack sufficient exercise.  So what have you done under circumstances where someone you are providing care for wakes up feeling agitated in the middle of the night?

After you’re sure that it wasn’t just a one night issue and that it is legitimately a problem that keeps happening, you need to find out what may be causing it.  If the issue is medication, perhaps a doctor visit and an alternative type of medication can alleviate the problem.  Lifestyle changes such as encouraging your loved one to read before bed instead of watching television, restricting caffeine, food, and drink consumption at hours close to bed time, and daily exercise may be effective solutions.  Check this article titled Insomnia: The Caregiver’s Role for more advice.  According to the article, sleep aids such as sleeping pills should be avoided because the body can eventually become resistant to them.
