Helping your Loved one with Hearing Loss

If you’ve noticed your spouse or loved one doesn’t seem to be listening to what you’re saying, they may not be intentionally tuning you out, but rather suffering from hearing loss.

This can be a frustrating situation for everyone involved. You may be wondering why your spouse just doesn’t turn down the blaring television and listen to you. Your spouse is wondering why you’re constantly mumbling. This mutual irritation can lead to misunderstandings and hurt feelings on both sides.

So how you can best help a loved one dealing with hearing loss?

The first step is to have a conversation. When you mention the possibility of a hearing problem, be prepared for some pushback. Once you’ve had that conversation and they are willing, contact Little Rock Audiology so we can discuss options with you and your loved one.
