Sleep problems in later life


In this section you can find out about the experience of sleep problems in later life, by listening to people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 33 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as changes in sleep, worries and impact on daily routine. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
