There’s nothing better than feeling fresh and energised after a good night’s sleep but as we get older sleeping patterns change leaving many people unable to get to sleep or stay asleep.
Insomnia is most prevalent amongst older people with sleep being regularly disturbed for a number of reasons including pain and discomfort through injury or illness.
An adjustable bed from Age UK could just help towards a more peaceful night’s sleep.
Age UK, the leading charity for older people, has carefully selected a range of adjustable beds to suit a variety of needs, tastes and budgets from the leading mobility company, Willowbrook.
Adjusted electronically using a simple hand held control, the beds in a variety of sizes are engineered to move silently and effortlessly to provide the correct support for the spine and help to distribute weight evenly.
Also, raising the back of the bed all the way up will make it a little easier for anybody who has difficulty getting out of bed as well as providing a comfortable position for reading.
Finding the right bed is important, so Age UK invites anybody interested to try a demonstration model at home for free.
A trained advisor can also make a full assessment of the individual’s needs and preferences and answer any questions to help people find products that best meet their individual requirements.
Choosing the way we live is important to us all, but as we grow older circumstances can make it harder to enjoy the life we want.
Age UK is running its ‘Living Your Way’ campaign to help older people stay independent and well for longer through information, advice, practical services and specially designed products.
So whether it’s impartial advice on staying independent or the next home move; a question about handrails or stairlifts; a helping hand with maintaining the home; or friendly local support for a loved one with decreasing mobility – Age UK and its local and national partners are here to help.
