Sleep and Aging – Some Facts from The National Institute of Health

"Older adults need about the same amount of sleep as all adults—7 to 9 hours each night. But, older people tend to go to sleep earlier and get up earlier than they did when they were younger."  So sleep is needed no matter what age you are.  According to the National Institute of Health; if you don’t get a good night’s sleep, the next day you may:

  1. Be irritable
  2. Have memory problems or be forgetful
  3. Feel depressed
  4. Have more falls or accidents
