Abstract

Background: Sleeping problems in the elderly are an important health problem in the growing elderly population and an important public health problem that needs to be solved in order to improve the quality of life and improve health conditions.

Aim: Investigation of sleep status and related factors in the elderly residing in nursing homes.

Methodology: In this cross-sectional study, 124 elderly individuals were taken. The research data were collected using an introductory information form. Number, percentage distributions, mean, standard deviation, t test and oneway variance analysis were used in the analysis of the data.

Results: 50.8% of the elderly participated in the survey, 44.4% are in the 71 to 80 age group, 30.6% are not illiterate, 81.5% have at least one chronic illness, of the patients are hypertension. It was determined that 58.1% of the elderly individuals had a sleeping problem, 60.5% slept for 1 to 5 hours a day, 65.3% slept during daytime and 63.7% did not feel rested after waking up.

Conclusions: The vast majority of elderly people living in nursing homes are experiencing sleep problems. It is important for elderly people to be educated and counseled in order to solve the sleeping problem and for the elderly people to be aware of the behaviors that may cause sleeping problems to prevent/reduce the sleeping problem.
