Night falls and it is any caregiver’s guess whether an elder in our care will be ready to go to sleep, or not. Some elders are light sleepers. Other elders have restless nights, in some instances complicated by restless legs syndrome. Last night, my mother’s blood glucose skyrocketed. All bets are off for restful sleep when that happens, including for my diabetic mother, and/or me.
