Health Tip: Alzheimer’s Affects SleepLast Updated: August 01, 2017.
(HealthDay News) -- Alzheimer's disease affects many aspects of living, including sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation says the disease can cause:
- Waking in the middle of the night.

- Evening confusion from lack of sleep.
Caregivers should maintain a consistent sleep schedule. If that doesn't improve sleep, consult a doctor.
