How do I know if my mother is having trouble hearing?
The signs and symptoms of hearing loss include:
Not being able to hear well in a crowded room or restaurant
Having trouble hearing children and women
Turning up the volume on the TV or radio
Needing to ask family and friends to repeat what they are saying
Complaining of "ringing" or "buzzing" in the ears
Hearing loss can diminish the quality of one's life by undermining relationships, interfering with short- term memory and affecting every aspect of daily living.
Encourage your mom to have a hearing test, performed by an audiologist. This is the first step to reclaiming her hearing, as well as improving the quality of her life and her family relationships.
Life Sounds Great!
Enjoy every moment!
