Influences on sleep-wake behaviour in older adults and community dementia care: Light exposure and partner impact

Allan, Alicia C. (2016) Influences on sleep-wake behaviour in older adults and community dementia care: Light exposure and partner impact. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project described sleep-wake behaviour in community-dwelling older adults and in community dementia care. It examined the applicability of a newly presented conceptual model (the Multifactorial Influences on Sleep Health model) to evaluate factors influencing sleep in ageing, with a particular focus on the importance of daytime light exposure and the impact of partners.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
