At Regency Nursing Centers, our staff of doctors and nurses have years of experience in working with Alzheimer’s patients and residents.
We are skilled in addressing the nuances of the physical and cognitive conditions of our Alzheimer’s patients and residents and we treat them with singular skill and compassion.
We are actually leaders in the field of treating Alzheimer’s disease within the framework of skilled nursing facilities and have in-serviced some of the top industry professionals on this topic.
Breitbart published a fascinating study yesterday which suggests that when we sleep, our brains get rid of gunk that builds up while we’re awake. The study may provide new clues to treat Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders.
If so, the finding may mean that for people with dementia and other mind disorders, “sleep would perhaps be even more important in slowing the progression of further damage,” Dr. Clete Kushida, medical director of the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center, said in an email.
Kushida did not participate in the study, which appears in Friday’s issue of the journal Science.
People who don’t get enough shut-eye have trouble learning and making decisions, and are slower to react. But despite decades of research, scientists can’t agree on the basic purpose of sleep. Reasons range from processing memory, saving energy to regulating the body.
The latest work led by scientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center, adds fresh evidence to a long-standing view: When we close our eyes, our brains go on a cleaning spree.
