Abstract

The etiology and course of sleep complaints and disorders in older adults is often complicated, which is partially attributable to changes in social rhythms (e.g., retirement) and other age-related factors (e.g., increases in medical, physical, cognitive, and psychological complaints and conditions). Geropsychologists should be aware of the nuances involved in the differential diagnostic assessment of normal age-related sleep changes versus sleep disorders and other comorbidities among older adults. There are numerous diagnosable sleep disorders that can manifest during older adulthood; however, this chapter will discuss the three most prevalent: insomnia, advanced sleep phase disorder, and sleep-disordered breathing. We will begin with a brief background of the epidemiology and ontogeny of late-life sleep, followed by an overview of sleep assessment in the older adult, and concluding with a review of evidence-based sleep treatments and discussion of future directions.
