Help those you care about get the hearing
loss help they need.
Loud TVs, constantly repeating yourself, or having to “translate” for your loved one can be frustrating.
Hearing loss increases the risk of falls, injuries and missed warning sounds — which increases everyone’s worry and stress.
When instructions or information get lost in translation, the chance for mistakes and misunderstandings grows.
Watching a loved one gradually withdraw from the people and activities they love can be painful and sad.
It is difficult to encourage someone with hearing loss to get the help they need without first getting them to acknowledge they have hearing issues.
Rather than simply applying short-term solutions, such as speaking louder, leaving the room when the TV is on, or repeating constantly, help your loved one find a better solution. When approaching a spouse about hearing loss, remember he or she may be in denial or self-conscious about the problem.
Frequently, those with the hearing loss are the last to acknowledge it. Learn why it’s important to advocate better hearing.Watch the video
