How to Help Adjust to Time Change


Time change has an affect on all of us. Specifically, time change is most strenuous on those who have dementia, Alzheimer’s or other cognitive impairments. How?

– Mood changes and frustration
– Increased confusion
– Increased risk of falling and heart illness
– Change in body chemicals = change in routine = change in health and well-being

One of the best ways to help seniors adapt to time change is by maintaining a proper routine and having a good sleep cycle. Time change adds complications to seniors’ health, but by making proper alterations to suit a regular routine and receiving the adequate amount of sleep, this should help ease the process of transitioning.
