Caring for Older Adults and their New Sleep Needs

As the U.S. population grays, more people will face new responsibilities caring for aging parents and their changing sleep needs. As people age they tend to have a harder time falling asleep and more trouble staying asleep than when they were younger.

Older people may also become sleepier in the early evening and wake earlier in the morning compared to younger adults.
