Helping Seniors Catch More ZZZ’s


Manhattan Beach, CA has much to offer its seniors such as the Manhattan Beach Pier and Polliwog Park. However, without adequate sleep, seniors cannot enjoy the lifestyle that this beautiful area affords them and they may even be lacking quality of life from the lack of rest. If your senior is exhibiting any of these symptoms, they may be lacking sleep:

  • Increased falling and lack of balance
  • Increase in illness frequency or severity
  • Poor emotional well-being
  • Confusion
  • Irritability

If this sounds like your senior family member or friend, it’s time to take action to help them. An Always Best Care provider can help you establish and encourage the following steps to help your senior catch more zzz’s:

 

Establishing a Bedtime Routine

Bedtime routines aren’t just for children. Nearly anyone, including seniors, can benefit from them. A routine can help the mind and body know when it’s time to relax and prepare for sleep. Listening to music, taking care of personal hygiene, warm baths, writing, and reading can all be ideal tasks for a bedtime routine.

 

Assessing the Sleep Environment

Rooms that are too hot, too cold, too brightly lit, or too cluttered can all have a negative impact on a person’s sleep. Help your senior ensure they have a cozy place to sleep that allows them to feel relaxed, sleep well and awaken refreshed.

 

Say Goodbye to that Bedtime Drink

Many seniors don’t want to hear this, but drinking alcohol before bed can actually inhibit sleep. It may be a hard habit to break, however, even cutting back on the amount or skipping some nights can help improve sleep in seniors.
