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.
