Frequently Asked Questions

The need for sleep varies considerably across age groups. Although, the need for sleep reduces with age, for most adults, 7 to 8 hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep.

The elderly experience different sleep problems if not more. They typically snooze for shorter intervals and with less intensity. Additionally, sleeplessness is somewhat more common among older persons.

Generally, it includes feeling drowsy during the day or falling asleep within five minutes of lying down microsleeps, or very brief periods of sleep in an otherwise awake person. Sleep deprivation can also result in irritability, and lack of concentration and prolonged deprivation of sleep can lead to anxiety, in such cases the elderly need online therapists.
