Article Summary: 

Circadian lighting, the use of artificial light to support health by minimizing the effect on our natural rhythm, has been found to enhance the well-being of seniors and children, and reduce falls. Our natural or circadian rhythm revolves around a 24-hour period and regulates sleep patterns. Adjusting lighting to warmer tones in the evening and brighter tones in the morning and throughout the day can help keep us alert and relaxed at the right times. Circadian lighting can be installed in common areas and in-suite to help keep residents alert during daytime hours and more relaxed into the evening. This pattern helps reinforce waking and sleeping time and reduces accidents. Low-level amber night lights can be incorporated into spaces travelled through at night. Tunable light bulbs, fixtures, and light-strips, and wireless dimmers, switches, and motion sensors can all be utilized to incorporate varied light intensity throughout the day and night. Improved lighting plays an important role in enhancing the overall well-being of individuals.
