Really hard to deal with and I know how your father must be feeling. Is your mother on any prescribed medication, doesn't always help though but worth talking to gp. when mum did/sometimes still does, we tried a herbal remedy, it was always easy for mum to fall asleep, staying asleep and in bed for more than 3 hours was the problem, so in the end I turned to our gp.
