Any suggestions on how to cope with a mother who makes constant verbal sounds?
I need help! My mother in law (69) is staying with us at the moment but she's driving me crazy. She makes noises constantly. If she's reading a book, she shuffles her feet, tapping the floor all the time and makes um um hmmmm noises. If she walks or moves the noises increase... Panting, oohing and ahhing with every step. When she goes into the shower the volume increases so much you can hear her all over the house. She has started eating with her mouth open, filling her mouth so full, food spills out and speaking with her mouth full. Are these signs of dementia, or something else?
