Light Exposure may Improve Agitation, Mood and Sleep in Dementia

  LED table lights and individual room lights were placed where patients spent most of their waking hours. The lights were turned on when folks woke up and remained on until 6 PM.
  Exposure to light stimulates the circadian system early in the day significantly decreasing scores for sleep disturbances, agitation and depression compared with placebo.
