Geriatric Sleep Research Program

Home > Clinic


The Sleep Disorders Clinic for Seniors at Ralston Penn Center is a unique clinic which specializes in the sleep problems of older adults.

Many sleep conditions are more common in senior citizens. These include conditions such as sleep apnea, insomnia and restless legs syndrome. In addition, the classic symptoms seen in middle-aged populations may not necessarily be present in older adults. This creates diagnostic and treatment challenges that are unique to older adults.

The clinic also benefits from its location in the Ralston Wellness Center. This building, which dates from 1850, is readily accessible via wheelchair and assisted transportation services. The clinic rooms and layout have also been designed to accommodate patients with special needs.
