Have you noticed a loved one asking others to speak up, turn the TV volume up, or withdraw from conversations? Often it is the loved ones of the individual with hearing loss who first notice and feel the impact of the hearing loss. But bringing up the topic of hearing loss and hearing aids can be sensitive and lead to a dispute. It may be the concept of aging, too many doctors’ visits, relying on technology, or cost concerns that keep the individual from the better hearing they deserve.
Here are some tips to facilitate a discussion about hearing loss and change their mind about a hearing test:
Scheduling an appointment is the first step towards better hearing. At the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center the appointment starts with an ear check and cleaning with the ENT physician followed by a diagnostic hearing test with a doctorate level audiologist and appropriate hearing device recommendation.
