In brief: On the other hand

Excessive daytime sleepiness is often the result of some health problems.
Possibilities include sleep apnea, narcolepsy, poor sleep hygiene and lack of stimulus control or there may be other causes. If this problem persists your mom may benefit from a visit to her pcp, and a sleep study if her symptoms indicate the need.
