Access to care is a person's ability to get medical care.
Why is it important to have access to sleep care?
Healthy sleep is one of the pillars of a healthy lifestyle as proper sleep, or lack thereof, affects daytime functioning and cognition, physical health, emotional wellness, safety and all aspects of your life.
What should I do if I think I have a sleep issue?
If you are not able to get an appropriate amount of sleep, all areas of your life can suffer. If you believe you may have a sleep disorder, it is critical to see a medical professional who can diagnose and treat that disorder so that you can manage your sleep disorder and live a long, healthy life. The first steps to getting the care you need are to be informed about what healthy sleep is and sleep disorders, recognize that you may have an issue and seek care. You can start by speaking to your primary care physician.
