Adjustable Beds for SeniorsIt's an unoriginal saying that the older you get the less sleep you need every night. Because you expend less energy in your old age and so don't need so much rest to replace it. I'm not suggesting that you be a Rip Van Winkle but you do need the right amount of sleep for your well-being.

Not sure about that - but I suppose it depends on the individual. Some people are sleepyheads from early age while others seem to get by a few hours per night even though they lead a busy life. Winston Churchill was a good example of the latter.

In how much sleep any particular person needs there is one sure thing. To enjoy good health, it's essential to have a deep, relaxing and unbroken sleep pattern. And, regardless of age, everyone needs their fair share of the land of nod. It's usually pretty obvious to others when someone is not sleeping well.

And to help you achieve restorative sleep, you need a good bed, especially as you age, and in this post we look specifically at adjustable beds for seniors to help alleviate any problems they may have in getting a good night's sleep.

We selected this range of bedsteads for two main technical reasons. The first is that they have bases that can be adjusted to suit your posture. And the second is that they come complete with modern mattresses for your maximum comfort.

For anyone suffering from conditions like edema, chronic back pain and arthritis these models can help ease the soreness and let you snooze in some comfort. Achieve a more restful, deep sleep from the benefits of using memory foam with it's advantages of dispersing body heat and reducing the restless motions of the sleeper.

Reviewers report that these units have made a great improvement in the quality of rest they achieve. Pregnant women may enjoy a more restful posture being able to remotely alter their position in bed. It's such a personal thing that you might keep in mind the people will have different views on what is comfortable or whether a mattress is soft, medium or firm. There is always the return policy if you find that a unit is not what you had hoped it would be.

Even the simple task of getting in and out of bed is made that much more easy for people with these conditions. It's worth noting that, while these units do not effect any cure or treatment for such distressing conditions, together any one of these combination could make a noticeable difference in the quality of your life.

We deliberately included for a range of prices to suit different pockets. The costs tend to reflect the standard of technology built into the base unit and mattress.

The benefit and not the cost of these pieces seems to the main factor behind the high ratings given by the numerous amount of folks who bought them

LUCID Queen Wireless Remote Control Adjustable Bed Base.

A smart-looking combination that has ample clearance underneath for extra storage. The base and mat can be bought individually if you desire. Also, please note that the headboard needs to be ordered separately along with suitable brackets - see panel above for sources for both.

The frame seems very easy to build (especially if you're not fitting a headboard) - take a look at the video to see just how simple a process it is. And no, you don't need a Formula 1 Pit-stop team to put it together! But it is chunky and probably needs two people to flip it back upright once it's built and the legs have been screwed on. Tip: build the unit where it's to be used.

The head and foot of the base work independently - 60 degrees range for the head with the foot operating at 45 degrees. All controlled by the wireless remote.

Available in five sizes: Full, Queen, King, Split King and Twin XL - so, a good choice of sizes for everyone.

While researching the reviews for this product we noticed that some people had concerns about either the bed or mattress moving. The solution offered by the manufactures was to use a Non-Slip Mattress Grip Pad - these are fairly inexpensive items to buy and come in different sizes to suit.

Apart from that the reviewers award this model a very good score in the ratings. One mentioned that when altering the position the motion was brilliant at chasing bossy felines who tend to hog their owner's basket - they just don't like it!
