My husband has had Alzheimer's for 9 years. After so long a time wishing he would just take a nap during the day so I could get something done, he is now sleeping 18 to 20 hours a day. Now that I do have the opportunity to get laundry, cleaning, etc. done, I am worried that he is sleeping too much. My clinical self says, "thank God for small favors".
Has anyoneelse dealt with this? Is this normal behavior with Alzheimer's patients?
