Anytime a senior has a "sudden" change in their usual routine such as sleeping habits, it is wise for them to see their primary care physician. There could be numerous issues contributing to this type of change. Therefore the physician could run some tests to determine the potential cause for this new behavior. A lack of sleep could lead to other problems as well.
