AbstractAccording to the Centers for Disease Control, Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia among older adults, is currently the 6th leading cause of death in the United States (US) (1). Moreover, in 2019 it was estimated that 5.8 million Americans were living with AD and related dementia and 14 million are expected to be living with the condition by 2050 (2). With the rising threat posed by AD and related dementia, it is vital to identify the precipitating factors to its development and progression; one possible contributing factor is sleep difficulty.
