When she does sleep, does she keep regular hours - sleeping at night and awake during the day? My FIL got them turned around frequently.

Have you tried something like Xanax or Valium for her? We tried Xanax for my FIL, but it didn't work so well, but the Valium - even though it was low dose, did the trick!
