We recently contributed to an article published on Age Mobility UK discussing why older adults might not be getting enough sleep.
We talked about a change in the body clock in later life and how the sleep hormone, melatonin, is released earlier in the evening in older adults meaning earlier bedtimes. This becomes a problem as many people are in the routine of heading to bed later – accommodating evening activities such as watching a show, seeing friends or reading. This frequently results in napping which then reduces one’s ability to fall asleep at night. It also makes for less time spent asleep as the change in body clock means earlier wake-up times.
The article on Age Mobility UK is worth a read. It covers many of the factors affecting sleeping in older adults.
