Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The Celexa can be a cause for decreased sleep in elderly. The antihypertensive medicines should be taken mostly in the morning to resemble the BP peak in early hours or your physician can tailor made them as per the BP profile.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
