That being said, I often refer to this article about sleep awareness: http://www.aplaceformom.com/blog/2013...
I think her quality of sleep is more important than how much she is really getting. Maybe she is more restless at night and not sleeping soundly than you realize.
Just a few things to think about when you call and discuss your concerns with her physician.

My husband had Alzheimers, is declining and is on Hospice. I let hem sleep. He rarely naps during the day so if he does not wake until 8 or 9 am I just let him sleep. He rarely if ever sleeps past 9.
If this is a new change in her sleeping pattern you might want to check with her doctor just to make sure everything is alright.
