The Senior Sleep Solution: A Guide to Improving Sleep in Later Life
The Senior Sleep Solution
is the sixth book in our senior wellness series and focuses on the common causes for sleep disturbance and provides methods to obtaining more restful nights.
As we age, our sleep patterns change. Older adults tend to have more difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep than their younger selves. Quality sleep, however, is essential to our physical health and mental well-being at any age. The Senior Sleep Solution explores the common cases of chronic sleep disturbance and provides practical guidance for seniors and caregivers alike on improving sleep quality and reducing sleep disruption. The strategies presented in The Senior Sleep Solution are based on well-researched and easily applied methods and include specific steps for seniors with dementia and various sleep disorders. Armed with the knowledge, families can be proactive about achieving the ever important good night’s rest.
