Everybody needs their sleep to be healthy ... even you

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Getting enough sleep is important for people of all ages. To learn treatments for some common sleep disorders attend a special event at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center on Wednesday.

The older we get the less sleep you need. Wrong! All adults in all stages of adulthood need between seven and nine hours of sleep. But as we get older getting a good night’s sleep is not always easy.

A variety of issues keep us up at night; sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome just to name a few. Jeffrey Bluhm, MD, FCCP, FAASM, is medical director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. Bluhm specializes in sleep disorders and will be presenting treatments for the symptoms of these common disorders from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center, 505 G Ave. in Lake Oswego.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.

Here are some of the activities coming up at LOACC in the coming week:
