Shine a Light on Senior Health
Many people are interested in quality sleep and for good reason. Michigan State University Extension recognizes that quality sleep is important for overall health at any age. Infants through 3 years need up to 15 hours. School age children need up to 12 hours, and teens need at least 9 hours sleep. New parents probably feel like they never sleep. Healthy seniors need at least 6-8 hours of quality sleep.
