As long as your Mom can handle the visits and as long as the visits are kept calm. Visit all you want.
As she declines I will magine visits will become further and further apart and shorter and shorter.
But if it is a way to keep family together and talking and visiting each other that can be a good thing.
If the visits upset her then cut it short and go to lunch and enjoy the company of family.
It might also be better, depending on how many people to rotate visits so you do not have 20 people at once then no visits for a month.
I would think the best way to judge would be to take cues from your Mom. If she is enjoying it great if not cut the visit short. Over stimulation can be just as bad as none.
