Objective: We compared subjective sleep quality, sleep disturbances and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in non-demented elderly, patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We investigated whether sleep dysfunction and EDS are associated with the severity of dementia.
