I have personally done a lot of reading on this topic and have to agree with WebMD there really is not a great deal of scientific evidence to show that one kind of mattress will help a person sleep better than another. There is some evidence that shows elderly seniors with certain medical conditions may get better rest on a particular style of mattress.
Possibly the biggest problem we encounter is elderly seniors who believe there is nothing wrong with their current mattress. The fact is that mattresses have a limited lifespan which can be the cause for lack of sleep and some of the pain that elderly seniors experience. Mattresses like us wear out and fatigue over time. This wear comes in the form of steel springs that become weak and foam that has fatigued and no longer recovers properly leaving a permanent body impression.
These two wear factors contribute most to the mattress problems that seniors face. Spending more money does not guarantee better support or comfort. In fact you may only be paying for high dollar advertising and more expensive building materials. We suggest you take into consideration the most important health factors of the elderly senior that will best support and comfort their delicate bodies.
Not the one their currently sleep on as we just found out. There are many kinds of mattresses this group can choose from:
Not taking the mattress for a test drive. Nearly every senior that walks through the door pushes on it with their hands and makes their mattress buying decision based on what their fingers feel. A few will actually sit on the side and again base their purchase on how it sits. The fact is if you sleep on your hands or butt then we will not question your buying methods, but if you’re like the rest of us then seniors you have to climb into different mattress models and spend some time there.
Focus on areas of your body that cause you problems and take note of comfort. Contrary to a majority of senior beliefs beds don’t have to be firm like a board to be good for you. Mattresses can have a little cushion and it’s ok to be comfortable. Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.
