my mum who has dementia is constantly talking or argueing with herself . i find this so frustrating and irritating . i cant think clearly myself . my own thoughts are over powered by this constant talking and argueing in the back ground . now my daughter who is 23 , is not bothered at all by my mums constant talking and self argueing . my daughter does not have perfect hearing < lucky for her > Anyway i was thinking people have different senses , which they prioritise over . sense /smell /sound /visual / taste .. for me sound must be the most important one . as from my screen name BMW777 . i love bmw cars and the sound the engine makes , is just ..ummmmmm .. my partner does not understand the sound of 6 cylinder BMW engine is like music to my ears , to her it is just noisey she is a more visual person , and everything has to be spick and span . the home has to be perfect , like a show home !! just wondered how other carers cope ,and how some people cope much easier than others and whether it is natural ability , or maybe out of the FIVE different senses , they do affect the way they behave ?
