Supporting Your Partner

Something to Talk About

1. Take notes

Watch your partner’s sleep habits and if you have concerns, see if their symptoms match the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea. If you’ve read this far, we have a sneaking suspicion that they probably do.

2. Give them the facts

Share your concerns with your partner and talk about how important it is to their overall health. Don’t just point out major concerns — like heart attack or stroke — but talk about how their life will benefit from more energy and feeling well rested.

3. Keep a record

Your partner may not realize how often they’re snoring or gasping in their sleep, or how often they complain about feeling tired. Keep track of these complaints so you can show them it has become a pattern.

4. Keep it simple

Show them how easy it is to get an at-home program to test for sleep apnea in their own bed from our sister company, Home Sleep Delivered.

5. Be there

If CPAP therapy is required, the best thing you can provide is compassionate support. While it might take a little bit for both of you to adjust, it has long-term, long-lasting benefits. For both of you.
