No Tolerance for Noise
I'm wondering if there's anyone here that is dealing with this problem. My mom (who has Alz) has NO tolerance whatsoever for noise of any kind, except her television. She's 83 and her hearing is GREAT. I believe the problem is that in order for her to focus on what she's "watching" on TV, she closes her eyes, to better concentrate. Then, when there's a sound in the room, it startles her and she goes off, whether it's me, or my dogs or my DH. It's really beginning to irritate me and I don't know how to handle it. I got really ticked off the other nite, just had it, and told her I simply cannot keep the house absolutely quiet for her 24 hours a day. I only ended up upsetting her, then of course I felt lousy. Anyone dealing with anything like this?
