We won't be offically diagnoised with Lewy Body until we see the Neurologist on the 10th, but she has all the symptopms of it. One thing I've noticed since the end of the last year is that my mother now keeps a very odd sleep schedule. I usually have her get ready for bed around 10pm. Some nights she goes to bed not long after. Other nights she won't go to sleep until 4 or 5am. As long as she stays safe in her room until then (not that she could get to anything at could cause a fire or something) I don't really mind. As long as she's up on the days I need her for appointments. Lately, it doesn't matter what time she goes to bed 830pm or 5am, she'll sleep until 1 or 2 the next day if I don't force her to get up. I'll admit, some days I let her sleep. It allows me to do errands with peace of mind. I can't take her most places because she either wanders off at break neck speed or interacts inappropriately with people. Her social behavior is atrocious. Sometimes she'll even take three hour naps on the days she sleeps until 2pm. (fingers crossed) she can still change her depends, shower, and change without my help. Though I've had to reteach her how to take off long-sleeves shirts several times. But everything I've read in forms says excessive sleep can mean the end stages for dementias of all kinds. She started showing symptoms at 46/47 she's 53. I thought maybe the sleeping was due to her being bored or depressed, but she keeps reassuring me that neither of those are the issue. I'm working hard on trying to get her into AL memory care, while she's still enough here to understand what's happening, and she can adjust. Plus, I think it would allow her to have friends. She's become outgoing since the dementia set in. She used to be heavily agoraphobic.
