Persistent tiredness

Help with tiredness in later life

Feeling tired all the time is a common problem in later life. Many people complain of feeling exhausted even though they are sleeping well.

Medical conditions like depression, Parkinson’s, anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland can trigger tiredness. In addition, lifestyle choices like drinking too much alcohol, a bad diet, some medicines and disturbed sleep (common in people living with dementia) have been identified as possible causes of tiredness.

Persistent tiredness can lead to feeling emotional or depressed. Reduced motivation to take part in social activities in the community due to feeling tired is another problem.

Lifestyle, and social circumstances will contribute to the feelings of tiredness and it is just as important to tackle these as it is to receive treatment for any conditions that are causing tiredness. Your consultant will discuss these with you and together you will decide what treatments are best for you.
