WEBINAR
Impact and Tips for Dementia-Related Sleep Disturbance

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (Pacific)
HOST: Alzheimer's Foundation of America Care Connection
FEE: None | REGISTER

Most individuals living with dementia experience changes in their sleep patterns. Understanding and treating these sleep disturbances can be challenging for care partners. Research suggests that sleep medications are not effective; however, non drug approaches are helpful in improving sleep in persons with dementia. This presentation will describe the link between dementia and sleep disorders, and discuss strategies for treating dementia-related sleep issues.

PRESENTER
Nancy A. Hodgson, RN, PhD, FAAN, is associate professor in the Department of Biobehavioral Health and Anthony Buividas Term Chair in Gerontology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. A nationally recognized nurse researcher, Dr. Hodgson's career has been focused on the development, testing, and dissemination of person-centered and family-centered interventions for persons living with dementia. As a clinician and educator, Dr. Hodgson seeks out innovative ways to foster academic-community partnership by linking research and practice in order to move evidence-based findings into dementia care practice. She is a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing and the Gerontological Society of America.
