My father has mild Alzheimer's. My husband has to repeat and explain everything ever spoken to him all day long. Exhausting.
But what is odd, he can hear the smallest item fall on the other side of the house, on padded, carpeting. It apparently sounds loud enough to scare him. He'll yell loudly, "Are you okay?" We'll answer, "Yes, we are okay." And that he CAN'T hear. Causing us to repeat several times. The doctors have found nothing wrong with his hearing.
Is this normal?
