The importance of quality sleep as you age: A guide from HillView Care

We often underestimate the importance of quality sleep, yet it plays a vital role in our overall health, especially as we age. Let’s talk about the significance of sleep and how the accommodation options at HillView Care contribute to a restful and rejuvenating night’s sleep. 

The importance of quality sleep as you age

It’s natural for sleep patterns to naturally change throughout your life but as we age the quality of our sleep becomes increasingly important. Quality sleep can be linked to many aspects of your well-being, including your cognitive function, emotional health and overall physical wellness. Getting enough sleep can help you manage many conditions, such as immune function, and mood changes, and is the key to healthy ageing. 

All the benefits of quality sleep include: 

  • Enhanced cognitive function.
  • Emotional well-being.
  • Improved immune function.
  • Better physical health.
  • Chronic disease management.
  • Reduced risk of falls.
  • Enhanced pain tolerance.
  • Healthy weight maintenance.
  • Improved stress management.
  • Longevity.
