Mum had just gone into a care home 3 weeks ago following a fire in her house. Mum has so far really declined and in our 30min meetings with her she is always asleep , and the care homes is saying she is sleeping a lot too. Mum is at the late stage if Alzheimer’s, is this normal though ?

Hello and welcome @tracyjono1

Yes, this sleeping is very normal - my wife is the same.

Do stick around the forum as you will get plenty of advice and support here. It's even a good place to just vent feelings as people here understand.

Perhaps your mum now feels safe @tracyjono1 now she has people around her all the time.

I remember my husband used to be very anxious if he was alone. It`s something which stopped me going out and leaving him.
