There are quite a few myths out there about sleeping for seniors that needs to be debunked. For example, the older a person gets, the less sleep they need. That is far from the truth. Adults need for sleep tend to remain the same even after they have grown older. Furthermore, there is no standard in how many hours a person needs to sleep. Anywhere between six to eight hours is adequate for a person, it all depends on which number is ideal for a particular individual. Despite contrary belief, alcohol can sometimes be good for sleep, a moderate amount of alcohol can actually help ease you to sleep, but definitely excise this tip with caution. Finally, according to AgingCare.com, waking up in the middle of the night isn't always bad. If you had to get up to use the bathroom, it won't devastate the sleep cycle as many might believe.
