Insomnia is a sleeping disorder that affects your ability to fall asleep and then remain asleep. It affects millions of adult Americans, but as seniors age, the likelihood of developing increases as well. While about one-fourth to one-third of the adult population reports sleeping problems—whether they last for a short or long period of time—that number increases to more than 50 percent for adults age 65 and over.
One major problem with insomnia is often the awareness of the simplicity of treatment. Though often very treatable with lifestyle changes, it’s been reported that up to 60 percent of people who suffer from insomnia don’t talk about it or mention it to their doctors.
