Daytime Sleeping Linked to Poor Recovery in Older Patients
Date:9/1/2008

environmental factors. Furthermore, it may be that daytime sleeping triggers decreased motivation and effort expended during therapy sessions, which could hinder recovery during rehabilitation.

These findings are important, since older people who are admitted to the hospital due to an illness or injury sometimes require a period of therapy and recovery in a rehabilitation facility (e.g., nursing home) before returning home.

Unlike mental status or hospital readmission, which are difficult or impossible to change, sleep is a predictor for rehabilitation outcomes that can be modified. Interventions to improve sleep in older people during rehabilitation may promote better recovery after an illness or injury.
