Free Sleep Assessment
Offered At Clifton Health Dept.

By on July 18, 2019

CLIFTON, NJ – The Clifton Health Department and Sleep Services of America will be co-sponsoring a free Sleep Assessment on August 1, 2019 from 2pm-4pm at the Clifton Health Department, located at 900 Clifton Ave, 2nd Floor. Registration is required. Please call 973-470-5773 to register. This screening is open to Clifton and Little Falls residents.

During this assessment, participants will complete a basic sleep survey to better understand whether they are experiencing normal sleep behavior or have a serious sleep disorder. Participants will then be able to discuss the results with a representative from Sleep Services of America, who will refer them for professional follow-up care if needed.  This assessment is non-diagnostic.

This assessment and subsequent follow-up care can detect disorders like insomnia, a condition in which an individual has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a lack of sleep makes it very difficult for people to work, drive, concentrate or remember things. Insomnia may be a result of an underlying medical or sleep condition, like depression, anxiety, or sleep apnea, or may be due to unhealthy lifestyle factors.  In order to get the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep, the CDC recommends that you go to bed at the same time each night and rise at the same time each morning, avoid large meals before bedtime, avoid caffeine and alcohol close to bedtime, and avoid nicotine. If you are interested in learning more about your current sleep patterns, the Clifton Health Department encourages you to make an appointment for this Sleep Assessment.

The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
