I am caring for my 97 yr old Aunt. I have been a bit concerned with the amount of time she spends napping during the daytime. She goes to bed between 8:00PM and 10:PM depending on the TV show she wants to see, and sleeps till 7 or 8 AM. so she gets plenty of sleep at night. But she takes a 1 1/2 to 2 hr nap after breakfast, and another after lunch. I have been trying to locate information to see if this was normal for her age. She only takes two medications but she had double hip replacement in Jan, plus a broken femur surgery (as a result of the hip replacement) She has recovered well and is able to walk slowly using a walker. She takes care of all her personal care and only needs a bit of help in showering. So you can see she is quite independent. This napping is my only concern.
