In-home caregivers in Colorado Springs can attest to the struggles of insomnia. According to recent studies, approximately one in three people will develop some form of insomnia during their lifetime. Of this percentage, women and people over the age of 60 are at a higher risk of developing this sleep disorder. This lack of proper sleep affects over 30 percent of the population and is heavily linked with those who experience stress, anxiety, and depression. Those who experience insomnia often encounter other problems during the day as a result of inadequate sleep.
Sleeping disorders can be particularly problematic for seniors and even their caregivers. To learn more about insomnia and how it affects people during the waking hours, call Home Care Assistance of Colorado Springs at (719) 822-1229 or read the following infographic below.
