Jockey club Cadenza eTools for Elder Care Online Course II: “Demand on your CARE: Is good sleep a blessing for ageing” (29/04/2019)

The Cadenza etools for Elder Care has launched the second online course, on 29 April 2019. This course is part of an online series of the Jockey Club CADENZA e-tools for Elder Care funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. Older age is associated with increased sleep problems and shorter sleep duration, which suggests that sleep disturbances could particularly be relevant issues among older adults. Older people who have good nocturnal sleep quality can cope actively with the challenges of growing old. In this course, we wish to draw the attention of older people themselves and carers about sleep health. Within the context of global demographic ageing trends, the course will explicate how to protect sleep in later life which may be important to continued successful ageing.
