Summary: Sleep disorders are prevalent among older adults in the United States. And yet, sleep disorders are less often diagnosed in the older adult. This session aims to close this gap by informing the geriatric specialist in the evaluation, management and treatment of common sleep complaints in the older adult. This session will highlight common sleep complaints, and the diagnostic tools to aide in the diagnosis of sleep complaints in the older adult.  In addition, we will review recommendations for the non-pharmacological/behavioral and pharmacological management of common sleep complaints.  We will conclude our session with a review of sleep consumer technologies, including apps, wearable devices, and related technologies.
