Insomnia is a common complaint among older adults. Many assume that getting older means no longer sleeping well. However, illness, inactivity, poor sleep habits, and the inappropriate use of alcohol, caffeine and tobacco—rather than age—are the major causes of sleep problems in late life. Fortunately, proper medical care and changes in sleep habits can often bring about a good night’s sleep, without the need for sleeping pills.
