Mums bloods are good the dr said her blood tests are better than the young ones so when mum is sleepy its because of the mixed dementia and choosing not to be responsive.
Hugs and prayers god bless to all.x

I agree, @A myALZteam Member. I think a lot of what appears to be sleep is escape. It seems to be just too hard to focus. At least that is what I see in my husband. Most of the time he responds right away if you speak to him or make a loud noise. I also think people do sleep more as the dementia deepens and this is sometimes accentuated buy the lack of good sleep during the night.

I give my mum her meds at night as that way it helps her sleep through the night.
But mum sleeps a lot during the day i think this happens as the dementia becomes more advanced.
As the dementia progresses i think it becomes harder for them to make conversation and they sit with their eye's shut so they can escape reality but they are not always asleep.
That is my interpratation from caring for mum.
I find that if mum gets visitors from the past she will stay awake for a while.
I hope you get the answers your looking for.
God bless you and your family.xx
