Sleep Problems in the Elderly

Presenter:  Dr. Thomas Weiss, Geriatric Psychologist

One-third of our life is spent sleeping - but sleep is much more than simply resting. Sleep is an important and essential element for a person's health and well being. A lack of regular sufficient sleep can create a large spectrum of symptoms and problems with energy levels, immune systems, cellular structures, and memory - all of which are being repaired or restored as you sleep.

Dr. Thomas Weiss will cover the following and more about sleep: 

  • The Functions of Sleep
  • Physiology of Sleep
  • Sleep Stages
