Sleep Products for the Elderly
Research has shown that almost 50% of seniors do not have a good night’s sleep at least several times every month. Sleep patterns may change with age, but there are several ways that we can help our loved ones get better rest each night. Before doing so, it is important to first identify the causes of their sleep problems. The following are 5 sleep products for the elderly you might then want to consider.
1. Noche Noche Waterproof Bedsheet
For seniors who refuse to wear diapers at night but experience incontinence, the Noche Noche Waterproof Bedsheet is an ideal solution. It reduces odours and is made up of a hypoallergenic, thermoregulatory material. This reduces the risk of bedsores, but is instead breathable and stretchable, allowing users to have better rest at night.
2. Foldable Backrest
The HappyHome Foldable Backrest offers a quick solution to creating an elevated backrest in bed. It is adjustable to 5 different angles, and its mesh fabric allows for breathability and easy cleaning. Seniors who prefer to rest with an incline or who struggle to prop themselves up might benefit from this product.
3. SOS Alarm
Sleep problems due to conditions such as depression or anxiety may stem from various fears. An Elderly Wireless SOS Alarm Pager might help to relieve these fears, as well as to provide a sense of security by assuring seniors that they are well taken care of through the night.
Seniors experiencing sleep apnea might want to check how well their heart pumps oxygen through the body using the Rossmax Fingertip Pulse Oximeter SB200.
5. Bed Rail
The Stander EZ Adjust Bed Rail is the only bed guard in the world designed specially for fall prevention in the elderly. It provides users with support to get in and out of bed more easily and safely. With its extendable length feature, you can adjust the bed rail to prevent falls at night, while the flip-down feature makes it easy for caregivers to assist in transfers.
