A Longitudinal Study of Poor Sleep After Inpatient Post-Acute Rehabilitation: The Role of Depression and Pre-Illness Sleep Quality
The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 06/01/2012

The findings expand understanding of the role of depressive symptoms and preexisting sleep complaints in predicting poor sleep over time among these vulnerable older adults.
