Seniors and Rest: Getting Enough Sleep Can Change Your Life

What Every Senior in Edmonton, AB Needs to Know About the Importance of Getting Enough Rest

Seniors and Rest | Sleep is important for all of us, and getting enough rest can have a wide variety of positive impacts on various health factors. Getting enough sleep has been proven to improve heart health, brain health, daily activity, energy, and the immune system. However, most adults don’t get enough rest, and for seniors, that can mean worse health.

In-home care can help your aging loved one to implement the tools they need to ensure better rest and better health.

Tips for Seniors and Rest:

  • Having a regular daily schedule, including a sleep schedule
  • Cutting out sugar, caffeine, or nicotine in the evening hours
  • Managing chronic health issues or chronic pain effectively through medication regimens
  • Engaging in relaxing activities before bed

Many of the habits that encourage good sleep and rest are habits that encourage good health generally. Your care provider will work with your loved one to create a daily schedule that facilitates their best quality of life, including any hobbies, lifestyle preferences, social activities, or community activities they want to engage in. Having a regular schedule can also improve memory and feelings of safety or stability for seniors of all ages.

Seniors and Rest and Routine:

Your care provider can use that daily routine to also implement healthy dietary adjustments, such as cutting out sugar or caffeine at night. This doesn’t mean your loved one’s habits have to be disrupted, but an after-dinner coffee could be replaced with decaf, tea, and other small adjustments that can lead to better sleep at night.

In-home care providers can also help implement regular medication reminders to be sure that all medications are taken according to the doctor’s recommendations. Staying on the correct schedule can make medication more effective, reduce side effects, and reduce the likelihood that medications might be skipped or forgotten.
