Aging, Sleep Disorders, and the Body Clock

As we age, the internal body clock that coordinates our physiology with the 24-hour day falters. Older people tend to get tired earlier and wake up earlier. Sleep problems, which commonly trouble the elderly, aren't just an annoyance. Lack of sleep can impair memory, disrupt metabolism, and perhaps even hasten death. Refs.

As some people get into their sixties and seventies they find themselves going to bed as early as 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. in the evening, and then waking at 3:00 or 4:00 a.m. in the morning. Many restaurants have "seniors" supper specials startin at 3 or 4 p.m. to accommodate older customers. When people reach their seventies and eighties their circadian rhythms can flatten out, and some elderly people lose the ability to maintain a functional sleep-wake cycle. This is most notable in elderly care facilities where residents can be found asleep at any hour of the day or night, and often sleep for a portion of every hour during the day and night. Refs

Low intensity Lo-LIGHT lamps have been shown to be as effective as bright light for light therapy, even though they emit no blue light. The patented GreenLIGHT technology used in Lo-LIGHT lamps provides a safe and comfortable light that is not selectively filtered out by the yellowing lens and maintains its effectiveness in older people. Lo-LIGHT lamps can be used safely by people with glaucoma or existing retinal damage and anyone who can safely tolerate normal indoor lighting.
