This paper focuses on the association of sleeping problems among mid-age and older women with being sedentary and the negative association with vigorous physical activity (PA). Sleeping problems are highly correlated with co-morbid chronic conditions and financial stress. This paper interrogates the complexities of prescribing and promoting PA for sleeping problems amongst older women. This paper is derived from a longitudinal study of women’s health and a sub-study of the 45 and up study. The paper explores the need for patient-centred care and responses in treating mid-age and older women with sleeping problems and evaluating the need for tailoring PA according to individual circumstances.
