As a hearing health care practice that deals with a multitude of patients with all different types of hearing loss, we understand how frustrating it can be for people with hearing impairments to communicate with the people around them. “What?”, “Excuse me?”, and “Come again?” are common phrases used constantly by people who suffer from this condition. This can be exhausting for both parties in the conversation.
People with hearing loss sometimes work harder to listen and understand what is being said. This causes the brain to overwork itself by trying to “fill in the blanks” and can lead to Hearing Loss Exhaustion which means that hearing loss could cause feelings of low energy. Sometimes people with hearing loss will answer questions inappropriately or will not understand what the conversation is about simply because they misheard what was being said.
When speaking to someone who has hearing loss:
- Be patient. Speak clearly and, if necessary, speak slow.
- Do not speak for them. If they didn’t hear what you said repeat it so they can answer by themselves.
- Face them when speaking and keep lips visible.
- Do not talk to them from another room.
- Avoid noisy environments, if possible.
