Dementia Carers are Sleep Deprived
How well did you sleep last night? Chances are if you’re a carer your sleep is impacted dramatically. Did you know that many Australians caring for a loved one with dementia are sleep deprived?
A new study by Edith Cowan University in Western Australia and Alzheimer’s WA asked 104 carers about their sleep and found 94 per cent are sleep deprived. We were joined by the lead researcher Dr Aisling Smyth to find out what needs to be done to care for our carers.
