How Sleep Changes with Aging- WWC 2014

Women in their middle years and beyond can have increased difficulty with sleep. These sleep problems can be related to changes in sleep with getting older, menopause, health conditions, some medications, and the presence of sleep disorders. The purpose of this session was to review these changes in sleep that may occur, and provide practical advice to help women 50 and older recognize sleep problems, adjust their lifestyle, and see help when it is needed.
