Publication Title: 
Clinical Interventions in Aging

OBJECTIVE: The current review aims to evaluate the sensory stimulation interventions in terms of reducing sleeping disturbances in patients with dementia. The nonpharmacological interventions seem to be an efficient, inexpensive, and easy tool for family caregivers. Moreover, sleeping disorders increase caregivers' distress and may lead to hospitalization. METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed. Eleven randomized controlled trials have been found.
