Tips On How To Choose A Mattress For The Elderly

Suffering from a poor night sleep? Well, you’re not alone! One in two seniors suffers from sleep deprivation and ends up sleeping during the day.  Choosing a mattress for an elderly is entirely different than choosing for the younger adult.  There are some things you need to consider for them to sleep like babies! Medical issues should be considered while shopping. Weighing the pros and cons of the different choices as well as which part of the body it will benefit should also be taken into account.

Before doing simple mattress shopping, research first on brands and styles. Here are some tips to help:

Memory Foam is regarded to be affordable but delivers exceptional support. It conforms to the shape of the body while holding in some of the body’s heat. It also soothes joints and muscles overnight. It can also provide relief to pressure which is the culprit behind the stiffness, numbness, aches, pains and soreness which the elderly wakes up to the next day.

Breathable  Mattress is also an exceptional choice. While it releases and allows the flow of warm air through the mattress especially during cold months, the breathability of the mattress is essential if the user has difficulty staying relaxed at night.
