My mom sleeps all day, is it possible that she is getting too much sleep?

She sleeps anywhere from 12 to 14 hours a day. Her doctor has given her a clean bill of health, I wonder if it's just because she is bored.

Depending on what health issues your mom has this may be normal. My mom has end stage alzheimers and is in hospice and sleeps 20 hours a day or more. And has been battling sundowners for 3 years. It's all part of her disease process, and when she is sleeping I know she is pain free. That's all I worry bout for her is not have pain.
