Getting a good night’s sleep is important for everyone, but as you get older, your sleep patterns will change and usually cause you to wake more regularly. External factors, such as bedtime routine, anxiety or discomfort can affect your sleep, as can the current disruption to our way of life caused by the Coronavirus.
At Complete Care Shop we offer many sleeping aids that can provide you with more comfort and peace of mind in the bedroom, to help you get the best night sleep possible.
Staying safe and supported in the bedroom as we age
Some people may feel anxious about managing their sleeping routine, particularly if they have mobility issues, which can lead to a fear of falling, or might mean that they find certain tasks more difficult. However, there are some extremely useful, simple products, which can help you on your way in and out of bed. Bed rails, such as the 2-In-1 Bed Rail, offer a supportive bar to grab at the side of the bed, which you can use to safely get up and out of bed, allowing you to keep your balance and manage with less strain on your body.
The importance of maintaining a healthy bedtime routine
When you are at home every day, as most of us are at the moment, it can be difficult or even seem somewhat needless to maintain your usual routine. However, sticking to a routine and going to bed at a regular time can help you to maintain your physical and mental health during this difficult time, when many of us are worried about COVID-19 and feel isolated from our loved ones.
Try to avoid watching television or looking at a tablet or computer for an hour before bedtime, as they can affect your sleep. Instead, you could try to do something to relax or wind down before bedtime, like taking a bath, calling your family reading a book or listening to music. An overbed table offers an easy way to enjoy activities like reading, writing or enjoying a warm drink before you turn in.
