Seniors typically have a lot of trouble sleeping. Some seniors have insomnia or other sleep disorders. Other experience anxiety or depression which can make it difficult for them to sleep. Some have trouble falling asleep because of medications that they take. There are also other reasons that can cause seniors to have difficulty sleeping, like using medical equipment at night. But healthy restorative sleep is essential for seniors so they can stay healthy physically and mentally.

That’s why seniors who are trying to get more sleep need to try everything they can, including changing out their bedding. Sleeping on natural fiber sheets and using natural fiber bed linens can improve the quality of a senior’s sleep.


Cotton sheets are the gold standard when it comes to bedding. There are many different types and weaves of cotton sheets so seniors will definitely be able to find a type that appeals to them. Seniors who have personal care at home can get help laundering their sheets when necessary to keep them clean and fresh and cotton sheets wash beautifully. That makes cotton sheets a great pick for seniors with incontinence who may need to wash sheets frequently. Personal care at home can also help seniors get cleaned up if they can’t get to the bathroom in time at night or have brief leaks at night.


Linen sheets are not as well-known as cotton sheets but linen is actually a fantastic fabric for sheets. Linen sheets are ideal for seniors who tend to be too hot when they sleep because linen sheets allow for good air circulation and they are very cool and comfortable to sleep on. Linen sheets are fantastic for summer when the temperatures can be quite warm. And linen sheets dried on the line in the summer air will provide a wonderful soothing sense of comfort to seniors all summer long.


Bamboo sheets are very versatile like cotton sheets are, but they tend to wear better than cotton sheets. Bamboo sheets last for a long time and they have great air circulation. They are also extremely soft. Bamboo sheets are perfect for seniors who sleep hot because they have better moisture-wicking capability than other natural fibers sheets, including cotton. They will absorb and wick away sweat and other fluids so that they don’t bother your senior parent while the are sleeping.


Muslin is a type of cotton, but muslin sheets deserve their own category because they are considered to be the height of luxury when it comes to sheets. Muslin sheets have an exceptionally fine weave them that make incredibly soft but strong. They have amazing airflow so that seniors don’t get too warm and they are easy to launder. With personal care at home and a few sets of muslin sheets seniors will be able to sleep better and longer at night so they can be healthier as they age in place.
