Elderly are often considered as a burden because of their physical limitations. The reduced cognitive function is one of the important causes for this physical limitation. Quality of sleep used to be associated with changes in cognitive function.

This study also excluded people with depression, schizophrenia, and users of psychotropic drugs. Eighty four percent of respondents have impaired cognitive function. Not much difference in percentage of insomnia disturbance in control group (37,5%) and case group (35,8%). Fisher's Exact Test show Sig.0,609 and OR=0.926 on CI [(0,194),(4,425)]. It was concluded that insomnia alone was not a risk factor for impaired cognitive modalities. Elderly exposed to sleep disorders have the same tendency to suffer cognitive impairment with unexposed.
