Advice for seniors good sleep from Home Instead Caregivers

Useful Suggestions from the Home Instead Team

As kids, many of us probably fought sleep. It is a good thing our parents were savvy and put us on a bedtime routine that included things like a regular bedtime and a warm bath. As adults, we get to make the decisions on what time we lay down for some shut-eye. One of the issues that many seniors face as they age is lack of sleep. Lying awake in the wee hours of the morning is no way to spend your golden years.

Sleep like a baby again when you take proactive steps. At Home Instead Senior Care, our caregivers can assist you in developing new routines for better rest, completing light household duties, and cooking nutritious meals. We are here to serve you and your family so you can continue aging at home.

7 Helpful Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep

Before you resign yourself to never sleeping well again, consider utilizing these suggestions:

  1. Determine how many hours you need. You may not need eight hours every night. You might be able to function on seven. The point is to get the amount of sleep that leaves you feeling rested and energetic the next day.
  2. Set a regular bedtime (even on weekends). It helps to make it a point of going to bed and getting up at the same times every day of the week. This includes weekends.
  3. Take a warm bath before hitting the hay. The warm water will help relax you and make you feel more tired.
  4. Turn off all electronics an hour before bed. By removing the electronic devices, you take away the additional stimulation that your brain needs to overcome. Instead, try reading a book or listening to soft music.
  5. Make your bedroom hallowed ground for sleep only. If you start tossing and turning, get up, and go into another room until you are tired enough to sleep. This helps train your brain that the bedroom is only for sleep.
  6. Get outside during the day when possible. When you get out, you are telling your body when it is time to be awake. It can help with the natural rhythm of your body.
  7. Add daily exercise to your day. Doing some activities each day can wear you out and give your body the desire it needs to sleep.
