vascular dementia: sudden "sleep" possible?

Sorry for my english....my father is in hospital due to abuse of psyco-medicines in the rest house he was living in. Now he is phisically much better but doctors say that probably the disease has done another step foward. The strangest symptom is that he suddenly falls asleep and it is a deep one: he doesn't answer, he doesn't move at all, if I hold and arm and let it fall, my father does't react....then he wakes up without remembering what happened. Does anyone have experienced the same?? I get so scared when he is in this condition!
