What To Do When Hearing Loss Strikes

Approximately 48 million Americans have significant hearing loss. In addition, 14% of people age 45-64 have some type of hearing loss. Unfortunately, exposure to everyday noise can contribute to hearing loss. Although many people have to deal with a working environment that can affect their hearing, just being exposed to noise in something like the subway everyday can cause hearing loss over time.

Hearing loss can be challenging. If not dealt with properly, seniors can become isolated and withdrawn. However, technology is available to assist people dealing with hearing loss. It’s also important to simply let others know what’s going on.

What To Do When Hearing Loss Strikes

High-tech Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are more advanced than the loud devices from thirty years ago. Hearing aids now come in various sizes, colors and can even be completely concealed. In addition, some hearing aids are compatible with other hearing devices like microphones and mobile phone attachments like the Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) that supports hearing.

New Tech Devices

Newer models of TVs now include more accurate closed captioning. There’s no need to turn up the volume to an unacceptable level to know what’s going on.

There are also telephones devices that allow captioning options. They can allow for conversations to never be missed again. This new tech assists people with hearing loss by helping to maintain a connection with others through the use of the phone.


It’s normal to feel uncomfortable about letting others know about hearing loss, but it’s better to let them know. They can learn to adapt by simply speaking slower or even louder. People will understand and be willing to repeat things and slow down in order to accommodate.
