Depends on what is going on.
Getting to sleep? Staying asleep? Poor quality sleep? Older people tend to have difficulty maintaining sleep. Usually chronic medical problems, medications, and sleep disorders such as sleep apnea could be the cause. Find out what the problem is with sleep. That will help guide what the problem may be, which may help guide recommendations.
