BACKGROUND Sleep and circadian rhythms are disrupted among many nursing home (NH) residents. We examined the impact of a multicomponent nonpharmacological intervention on 24-hour rest/activity rhythms among long-stay NH residents. METHODS The study was a randomized controlled trial in which, following a 3-day baseline, participants received 5 days of either usual care (control condition) or the active intervention. The intervention combined increased exposure to outdoor bright light, efforts… CONTINUE READING
