Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTi) is a form of talk therapy to improve disturbed sleep. This study will test CBTi to improve the sleep of persons living with dementia (PLWD) and their caregivers who are both experiencing sleep problems. The intervention is designed to improve sleep and health outcomes for PLWD-caregiver pairs. For the four-week CBTi intervention, each PLWD-caregiver pair will receive CBTi via video conferencing sessions. Sleep data, depressive symptoms, and cognitive health data will be collected at the start of the study, and at one week and three months after completion of the intervention.
