if he sleeps during the day does he sleep through the night? mine has got vascular dementia for the last 18months and he sleeps especially most of the afternoon. he would sleep some of the morning away as well if he cant sit in the front garden. he says its boredom but i dont know or if he goes out for an hour, he is very tired afterwards. can you wake him to eat and drink? could it be his meds.
