Older adults need the same amount of sleep as all adults – 7-9 hours each night.


Go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day.
Even on weekends and when you’re traveling.

Develop a Routine

Take time to relax before bed each night.
Things like reading a book, listening to soothing music or soaking in a warm bath can help you relax.

Keep your Bedroom at a Comfortable Temperature

A room that is too hot or too cold can affect sleep.
Keep the room as quiet as possible.
