Sleep disturbance has long been reported in caregivers of dementia
patients; yet, few studies have focused on the specific nature, magnitude,
and correlates of disturbed sleep, especially in caregivers with few
material resources. Purpose. The purpose of this study is two-fold: (a) to
describe dementia caregivers' daily experience including nighttime sleep,
nighttime care activities that interfere with sleep, and daytime thoughts
and feelings; and (b) identify correlates of caregivers' sleep-wake
patterns that deserve further study because, if modified, they may lead to
improved caregiver sleep and well-being and possibly keep patients in the
home longer. Theoretical Framework. These correlates may be within-subject
factors that vary from day to day (e.g. adherence to sleep hygiene
principles; amount of nighttime care required by the dementia patient)
and/or between-subject factors that are somewhat more stable (e.g., amount
of caregiver burden; age, and physical and mental health of the
caregiver). Outcomes of interest are caregiversÆ mood states and intention
to institutionalize their afflicted family member. Subjects. A total of 40
caregivers of Medicaid recipients living in the Detroit area are being
recruited for the study. Methods. Data collection is now in progress.
Within-subject variables are being measured for 14 days using Actigraphy,
sleep-wake logs, and mood scales. CaregiversÆ physical health, reactions
to caregiving, and symptoms of depression are being monitored. Based on
sleep values estimated during the first authorÆs completed meta-analytic
grants establishing how sleep changes with age, the specific nature and
magnitude of caregiver sleep disruption will be described. Data reduction
techniques will be used to construct composite variables for manifest path
modeling. By conference time, the authors will be able to demonstrate how
much caregiversÆ sleep deviates from normal for similarly-aged adults and
report progress in identifying within and/or between subject factors that
account for disturbed sleep in this underserved population.
