Comfortable sleep gets more difficult as we age, so a proper mattress is critical for seniors. Durability is an important factor, especially if you're on a fixed income and are looking to get the most for your money. The ability of a mattress to conform  to the body is helpful in preventing painful pressure spots, especially for seniors who spend time in bed due to injury or illness. And a mattress that regulates temperature, being neither too cold or too hot, is important, as seniors can feel chilled during periods of rest. Chronic pain also needs to be addressed: those with back pain do best with a firm mattress, while seniors with hip pain or advanced arthritis may get better results from a soft to medium-soft mattress.
