How to Deal With Senior Insomnia

Victoria Senior Home Care  |  May 18, 2022

What Every Senior in Victoria, BC Needs to Know About Dealing with Insomnia

How to Deal With Senior Insomnia | Insomnia is one of the most important problems that seniors face nowadays. If you provide 24-hour home care to a senior, you may begin to observe some of the signs and symptoms of sleeplessness in your loved one.

Several causes of insomnia are very common in the older population. Some of the most prevalent causes of this sleep problem in older individuals are poor hygiene, stress, anxiety, inconsistent sleep habits, stimulant usage, depression, and drugs. As a 24-hour home care provider, you must always be on the watch for insomnia. It might be difficult to determine if a loved one is suffering from insomnia, but there are ways to recognize the signs and symptoms of this disorder when they occur.

What to Look For and How to Deal with Senior Insomnia:

  • It takes longer than 45 minutes to fall asleep
  • Having difficulty sleeping
  • Waking up in the middle of the night
  • Waking up early in the morning and unable to sleep
  • Drowsiness or moodiness
  • Feeling tired and drained all-day
  • Depression
  • Complaints about staying up all night
  • Accidents caused by sleep deprivation
  • Memory problems
  • Concentration problems

As a caregiver who is available 24 hours a day, you may notice some of these signs and symptoms more frequently than a caregiver who just works one shift per day. Many of the symptoms of insomnia are present both during the day and at night. When you observe them, call their healthcare practitioner for medicine or a change in regimen that will help them return to a normal sleep cycle.

If you keep these ideas in mind, you will be able to detect the signs and symptoms of insomnia in your loved one and ensure that they receive the assistance they require to overcome this disease and get the rest they require to be their healthiest.

At Comfort Keepers® Victoria we feel that home is the best place to be.

If you are concerned about the health and well-being of your aging loved ones we can help with 24-hour care, post-surgery care, senior living transition services, and much more!
