This coming from a daughter to her father….are you feeling alright? She felt that he wasn’t feeling well as he wasn’t responding to her, as she recalled he used to, during her visit from out of state. After their conversation at home, it became evident to pursue help and a better understanding of the problem. The hearing loss made it rather challenging for him to hear and enjoy the visit and everyday life. These hearing issues, slowly progressing, made his hearing loss difficult to recognize as many feel the same.
He feels now, after chatting, that when he can’t hear he tries to control the situation. Otherwise, he can’t hear others and their voices are muffled especially when he doesn’t know the topic of the conversation. As I have become very familiar with this man, we soon became aware that this was disruptive to his enjoyment of gatherings and he knows that there must be better ways of hearing.
Harry is very optimistic to hear better! It’s a pleasure to be a part of his family connections and to offer assistance.
Current digital processing with hearing aids is truly remarkable.
