(NAPSI)—It’s a blanket statement but still true: Aging Americans can benefit from having a special blanket—one that’s lightly weighted to about three to five pounds, that is.

There are several reasons. First, older people tend to get less deep REM sleep at night. A weighted blanket can help the brain produce melatonin and serotonin, allowing the person to sleep more soundly at night and be more alert during the day.

The elderly tend to get cold easily regardless of the temperature, and featherweight blankets keep them warm because the polypellet content makes these blankets sort of a beanbag combined with a blanket.

Featherweight blankets from Mosaic Weighted Blankets provide a feeling of comfort; they mimic a hug with their steady pressure on the body. The even distribution of weight gives a pleasant feeling of being cuddled and comforted.
