Sleep scenes show Allen County residents the challenges answers to getting a good nights rest, as part of National Sleep Awareness Month.
Allen County Regional Hospital and Thrive Allen County teamed up to present a weekly series of events to raise awareness about sleep issues. The events portray a typical scene like a college dorm or a campout with advice about how to fall asleep and stay asleep.
The first event took place Tuesday at the Thrive office at 9 S. Jefferson Ave., when ACRHs Traci Plumlee and her family set up a typical campfire scene with friends. Surrounded by tents and camping chairs, they played music and used a television set to mimic a campfire. The idea was to show how difficult it can be to maintain a good nights sleep when you are outside your normal environment. A consistent schedule is important to sleep.
