It’s refreshing to see celebrities coming together to generate more attention to senior care and open the difficult discussion of long term care. So often our industry sees many who are in long term care with no regard to their continued hearing health, which is very important in communication, especially in ongoing care situations. With any aging family member it is a good idea to keep their hearing health in mind, but especially in situations which one already wears a hearing aid or has known hearing loss, it is even more imperative to keep this in mind. Along with the initial planning that goes along with basic and advanced care, hearing care options such as how close a hearing clinic is, if any hearing services are offered or if any hearing providers do in-calls to any living facility or senior centers nearby. Watch the video below to watch Maria Shriver and Rob Lowe open the discussion about long term care and planning ahead.
Communication is paramount for everyone, but particularly to seniors who have gradually or suddenly lost their hearing and are involved with doctors, nurses, caregivers and family every day. Trying to communicate without proper hearing can be exhausting on a whole level beyond any other battles or ailments they may be facing. Our clinicians have extensive experience working with many different patients who rely on caregivers to help them with their transportation and health care and include those caregivers in the conversation on hearing care, hearing aids and how to care for both.
