TIPS FOR SLEEP AS YOU AGE
Table of Contents
Adults require the same amount of sleep from the age of 20 into later adulthood. The hours of sleep per night changes by an individual, but many older adults get less sleep than they need. Age-related changes in sleep patterns, illnesses, mental health, and medications are among the factors that can worsen sleep. Good sleep is important to health and emotional well-being at any age, but is vital for older adults because it can improve memory, repair cell damage and help prevent disease.
