Why does my mom sleep so much?

My mom is in the early/moderate stage. She sleeps most the day but does experience some insomnia at night. She seems fine in the morning but I can't get her on the phone later in the day or even early evening. She has occasional confusion about her surroundings at assisted living. What stage of Alzheimer's is this?

Let me first say that your mom is truly blessed to have you by her side to care so much about her and to love her so much on this very difficult journey. I would like to share an article with you that I hope you will find helpful. https://alzheimersdisease.net/symptoms/sleep-issues. Please know that our community is here for you.

    1. My mom's memory is worse in the morning. But she is grateful I am helping her remember, even if I have to explain it 3 times.
