Many people mention when getting older they can find sleep more elusive. Several medical studies have found that as people age it’s a natural process for sleep patterns to alter. This could involve becoming sleepy earlier, experiencing less deep sleep and waking up earlier. All of this can then be accentuated by things such as medication or aches and pains, which can inhibit sleep.
Having a mattress that suits you is important in enabling a good night’s sleep and as we age our bodies have different requirements. Therefore, making sure you evaluate every few years, how well your mattress suits you can be key in ensuring you continue to get a good night’s sleep.
We’ve compiled a helpful list below of the top five mattresses below. Although when doing your own research there are a few things that will help you in the buying process too. For example if you have a serious health condition such as a bad back, make sure you consult with your doctor, as they might have some good tips on what to look for that are tailored towards you. Once you’ve researched the mattress you would like, try to find a shop where you can try the mattress out. Or if you’re not very mobile/ would rather not make the trip to the shop, try to find a seller that offers a mattress trial. This way you can really know whether the mattress suits your needs.
