LAKEWOOD, N.J. – Sleep needs change as people age. Irregular or poor sleeping habits can have a significant effect on health – contributing to depression, attention and memory problems, nighttime falls and more.
The Center for Healthy Aging at Kimball Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, will host a free Lunch and Learn entitled ‘Sweet Dreams for Seniors: Getting a Good Night’s Rest’ on Monday, August 19 at noon for seniors 60 and older.
Guest speaker Kathy Feeney, RPSGT RST, manager of the Center for Sleep Disorders at Community Medical Center, will provide participants with tips for getting a better night’s rest. She’ll also teach seniors about common sleep disturbances and the myths and facts surrounding sleep problems as people age.
Lunch will be provided during the free session, which will be held at Kimball’s Center for Healthy Living, located at 198 Prospect Street in Lakewood. Registration is required by August 15 by calling the Center for Healthy Aging at 732-597-6075.
