November A.W.A.K.E. Sleep Support Group
Parrish Medical Center’s November Sleep Support Group A.W.A.K.E.
— Alert, Well And Keeping Energetic; Learn How to Help Yourself
TITUSVILLE, FLA. (November 2, 2011)—Do you or someone you know suffer
from sleep problems? If so, you are encouraged to attend this support
group meeting on Monday, November 7 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Parrish
Healthcare Center at Port St. John, 5005 Port St. John Parkway (east of
the I-95 Port St. John exit). The meetings are held in the Conference
Center by the south entrance (near the sleep lab). This is a free community
service. Please call 321-268-6408 to register.
The November 7 meeting will include:
· How much sleep do you really need? Do you ever feel sleepy or
“zoned out” during the day? Do you find it hard to wake up
on Monday mornings? If so, you are familiar with the powerful need for
sleep. However, you may not realize that sleep is as essential for your
well-being as food and water. Are you at risk for a sleep disorder? What
exactly is sleep? From deep sleep to dreaming sleep, they are all vital
for your body and mind. Each stage of sleep plays a different part in
preparing you for the day ahead. We will talk about anything you need
to know regarding your sleep!
· Free Sleep Disorder Risk Screenings will be available with a
registered sleep technologist. Presented by Kristina St. Peter-Weaver,
RPSGT, Neurodiagnostic supervisor.
At every A.W.A.K.E. Support Group meeting you’ll have the opportunity
to see newer model CPAP machines and masks and receive a free mask fitting.
