Breaking the vicious circle: Finally sleeping through the night - despite dementia
67% of patients with dementia suffer from sleep disturbances affecting both patient and caregivers. Sleep aid medications often become ineffective, and are not a long-term solution.
- Less night time wandering
- Less napping during the day
- Less disorientation
- Decreased need for sleep aid medications
- Peace of mind for caregivers

|Ms. Würth from Germany|
|"I used two of the mattresses and now I get the info, that the two residents stay in the bed, are sleeping and during the day they are more attentive. The one resident was previously bent over all day, at times almost 90 degrees, but now he goes much straighter. A great success"|
|Stine Sievertsen from Denmark|
|"Again we would like to share this success story with you. Our demented father sleeps again at night after he got a ThevoVital mattress. Our father has dementia and has good and bad times. But especially at night, our mother had bad nights without sleep. Our father has been very troubled by sleep apnea and has therefore not oxygenated enough. With the resulted that he slept most of the day. Similarly, he could not lie still for the night and his quilt was turned around in the bed. At the same time he has always had one leg outside the bed and turned against the bedside. Now our father is awake during the day and is quiet at night and is much more manageable. The quilt is quiet at night and he has now a quiet breathing at night. He does not use any Cepap mask anymore. The reason that I have ThevoVital mattress home for our father, is that I am employed in Sønderborg municipality as District nurse and know the effect from my professional work. Sincerely Stine Sievertsen District nurse"|
|Svend from Denmark|
|"Svend is 62 years old and has Parkinson's disease. Before he got ThevoVital mattress he was awake 3-4 times a night and did not want go to bed again. He also had to use diapers. Besides, when he was walking he fell over and therefore had many bruises and wounds After 14 days of use of the mattress, there has been clear progress for Svend. He is not awake during the night but sleeps most of the time straight through the whole night. He does not use diapers anymore and if he goes to the toilet, he goes straight back to bed. Overall he sleeps much better, more regularly and feel much happier. Svend has got a much better quality of life by using ThevoVital"|
|Head of an area/a department at Prestrudsenteret in Hamar from Norway|
|"It's been an amazing change for her to sleep on the mobility bed ThevoVital for pasients with dementia. She had at better night sleep already the first night, and we have reduced her use of medications. The application for moving her to another resident with protected areas has been withdrawn."|
|Marc Westermann, Head of the Nursing Centre Prosenium from Rotenburg, Germany|
|"Major sleep disorders of residents suffering from dementia in our care facility can be considerably alleviated without any damaging side effects. An additional benefit is that as a result of these mobilitybeds the night staff is noticeably relieved."|
|Marianne Zoll, Cares for her mother at home from Bremen, Germany|
|"A big problem was the continual restlessness. Even at night my mother (99) could no longer relax. Sleeping though the night was no longer conceivable. For nights I was also unable to sleep and was at the end of my rope. The TheoVital mattress finally made it possible to sleep peacefully through the night. I am thrilled."|
|Walter Manz, Head of Nursing Care Elisabethstiftung in Lauingen, Germany|
|“Mobility beds for patients suffering from dementia improve sleep patterns and the night sleep is more recuperative. As a result, the willingness to do activities during the day increases. In addition, the social conduct and approachability of the residents are much better. The hours spent in bed during the day are reduced and behavior associated with the Sundowning Syndrome is reduced. In a few instances, auto stimulatory effects also subside.”|
|Marie T., caregiver of her Mother who has dementia, from Germany|
|Before: When her Mother would awaken to go to the bathroom or otherwise, she would have trouble getting back to sleep. Was unable to make her bed in the morning.
After: After sleeping on the ThevoVital mattress, she noticed her Mother has slept in more in the morning (during the last three nights) and seems more rested when she wakes up. She is able to make her bed again in the morning.
|Mr. S from Tampa, Florida, USA|
|Prior to the trial of the ThevoVital Mr. S was up several times a night, wandering and following his caregiver. He was very boisterous, disturbing the other residents. As the weeks went by, while sleeping on the Thevo Mattress, his periods of sound sleep increased. After a period of about 5 weeks on the ThevoVital mattress he was sleeping in his bed through the night. During the time he was sleeping through the night, a decrease in dementia was noticed. Sleep medications were reduced. Once Mr.S returned to his own bed, his old sleep habits returned.|
