Sleep: A Pillar of Healthy Ageing 

We spend about a third of our lives asleep, by the time we’re 65 that’s about 22 years.

But the importance of sleep is largely overlooked when it comes
to wellbeing. In older adulthood, sleep can become more disturbed.
This can affect how we feel and function plus impact our physical and
mental health.

Dr Rosie Gibson is a Researcher at the Sleep/Wake Research Centre
(Massey University) where she studies sleep changes with ageing and
its relationship to health and wellbeing.

Join us for our next workshop:

  • 15 March 2021

Please call 04 499 6648 for dates and more information.

For more information on sleep, please read Rosie’s blog by clicking here, or view Dr Gibson’s online sleep presentation here.
