Mean sleep efficiency was 78%, functional status was fairly good (mean IADL 45 of 50 [SD = 6.12]). Regression analyses indicated that increased stability in daily routine, as measured by the SOAR for the entire sample, predicted shorter sleep latency, higher sleep efficiency and improved sleep quality, beyond functional status, comorbidities, and age. Similar associations were found for the subsample using the SRM.
