Key Signs

Hearing loss is usually not something that happens overnight. Every day, 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. To help you tell if they’re having a problem, here are some signs to look for:
• They misunderstand conversations, especially in crowded areas.
• They turn the television or radio up so loud that it disturbs others.
• They favor one ear over the other.
• They complain about ringing or buzzing in their ears.
• They constantly ask people to repeat what they said.
• They feel that people speak too softly or they complain that people mumble.
• They have trouble understanding phone conversations.
• They do not hear the turn signal in the car, or hear the doorbell or
   telephone ring.

Reasons for Ignoring the Problem:
• Embarrassment  • Resentment  • Pride • Fear • Frustration

Getting Started
The best thing you can do is to convince them to have their hearing checked to confirm if they do indeed have a problem. Not everyone does, but the only way to find out is to come in for a hearing test.
