Springing forward is tough for some
FOR most people, the clocks changing this month provides a temporary inconvenience of an hour’s less sleep.
However, for many of the 72,000 people with dementia in London it can affect their sleep routines and may lead to them waking at the wrong time or struggling to get to sleep.
Disrupted sleep is just one of the many challenges people with dementia and their carers face.
Alzheimer’s Society is here to help at www.alzheimers.org.uk or by telephone on 0300 222 1122.
Perhaps your readers would consider joining the 1.4 million people who have become ‘Dementia Friends’ to learn more about the disease and the ways they can help?
