Abstract

Providing care to a family member with dementia has significant psychological and physical consequences. Sleep quality is likely affected by caregiving, yet this domain has received surprisingly little empirical study. In this study, sleep complaints were examined in 90 older women who were family caregivers of adults with dementia. Caregivers reported more sleep complaints that similarly aged healthy adults on all seven components of the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, and a similar level of sleep complaints to those of sleep-impaired women and depressives on 6 and 4 component respectively. Sleep medication was used by 38% of caregivers in the past month. The most common sleep complaints that occurred at least weekly were waking up in thenight or early morning (84%) bathroom needs (83%) and sleep onset difficulties (41%). Sixty percent of the sample reporting nighttime care recipient disruptions stated that these disruptions occurred 3 or more times per week. Caregiver relationship and care recipient diagnosis were unrelated to sleep complaints. Lower levels of education, less internalized anger, care recipient disruptions, and psychological distress were related to poorer overall sleep quality. Sleep complaints are a common yet understudied problem infamily caregivers.
