Soundproofing Floor - Elderly person With Dimentia
« on: February 28, 2009, 09:13:46 PM »
I have an elderly neighbor who is clearly suffering from some form of dementia. She screams at night, complaining about music that she believes is playing in my apartment. This music is non-existent. She protests this imaginary music playing by screaming at the top of her lungs, stomping around her apartment, tapping my floor with a broom, and turning on every stereo and television she owns to full blast. I've talked to the landlord about this issue and they called the department of aging to get a care giver for her during the day. This doesn't help the night problem and actually causes more noise problems during the day. She physically fights her care taker, screams, and slams doors throughout the day. I'm at my wits end regarding this situation. Anyone have solutions for soundproofing my floor?

From the sound of it, I take it your upstairs. If you have carpet you can put MLV w/closed cell foam underlayment beneath the carpet and padding. This will at least give you some peace and quiet.
