Any way to differentiate whether problem is failed thermostat vs. failed sending unit without replacing one or both.. Has slowly been drifting down over several years.

sender units very common for failure.if youve got heating on full whilst driving you should be toasty warm ,and if the gauge reading low it could be telling porkys.
