Hearing loss is usually not something that happens overnight.  Everyday your loved one hears a little bit less.  At first it’s hard for them to know if they really do have a problem, because sometimes they can hear and sometimes they can’t.  But there are signs that you can look for to tell if they’re having a problem.

Signs of Hearing Loss

  • Do they misunderstand conversations, especially in crowded areas?
  • Do they turn the television or radio up so loud that it disturbs others?
  • Do they favor one ear over the other?
  • Do they feel that people speak too softly or complain that people mumble?
  • Do they ask people to repeat what they said… more than you know they should be asking?
  • Do they have trouble understanding phone conversations?
  • Do they not hear the turn signal in the car, or hear the doorbell or telephone ring?
  • Do they complain about ringing or buzzing in their ears?

Why don’t they want to do anything about their problem?

There are many reasons

  • Embarrassment
  • Resentment
  • Pride
  • Fear
  • Frustration

What can you do?

The best thing you can do for them is to convince them that its time to find out if they do indeed have a problem.  Not everyone does, but the only way to find out the answer to the “Do I have a problem hearing?” question is to come in for a hearing test.
