Have you or an elderly family member experienced any of these common conditions associated with poor sleep: dementia, restless leg syndrome, snoring and sleep apnea? This new publication may offer you some valuable ideas for changing a problem pattern.
“Home Care Assistance knows the value of quality sleep in improving the overall wellbeing of our clients, so we decided to consult our experts and publish a book about sleep! The Senior Sleep Solution: A Guide to Improving Sleep in Later Life is available now!”
The book contains information about sleep cycles, stages of normal sleep, the problems cited above and tips for returning to a normal sleep pattern.
Some sample tips for you:
Establish A Consistent Bedtime
When you train your body to go to sleep at a regular time every day, as a creature of habit, this should make a predictable sleep routine normal for you.
Avoid Big Meals at Night
Do you indulge at bedtime? A heavy meal can leave you feeling overly full and uncomfortable as you try to get to sleep. Higher fat meals can also excite the brain and result in vivid dreams and nightmares.
Slow gentle stretches before bedtime is often found to help people fall asleep more quickly. How about trying a senior yoga or Tai Chi class and socialize while stretching. With this kind of support you can learn relaxing and flowing motions, which may assist your sleeping.
