Unlocking the Secrets of Optimal Sleep in Senior Years


Unlocking the Secrets of Optimal Sleep in Senior Years


The journey into golden years comes with its share of challenges. One imperative aspect often overlooked is our evolving sleep requirements. Understanding this can be daunting, so let’s unravel the enigma of optimal sleep for senior citizens, with the help of the senior living community at Deer Trail Assisted Living. 


As we age, the body undergoes transformations and needs altered levels of sleep. Generally, seniors should aim for a restful slumber of 7-8 hours each night. But, if a senior finds it hard to attain this, modifications to their routine can make a significant difference.


Beans or brews? Watch your choices post sundown. Caffeine and alcohol need curbing as they interrupt sleep cycles. The key is a consistent bedtime and an ambient surrounding that cocoons the body to fall into a relaxing sleep. 


Next on the list are lifestyle changes. Engaging in day time physical activities, nurturing a pet, or luxuriating in a warm bath can all act as catalysts to trigger restful sleep. 


However, aging can bring in unwelcome cohorts of chronic illnesses, often demanding medications that may disturb sleep patterns. In such scenarios, Deer Trail Assisted Living’s senior living community is an excellent option to consider, wherein dedicated care, warmth, and resources are at seniors’ service to help achieve that perfect sleep.
