Aging and Hearing Loss: Can You Talk About It?
The Hearing Loss Discussion Group has quieted down a bit, so I thought I'd pop in here to open a new discussion on aging well.
While hearing loss affects people of all ages, we all know it's more common among the senior population. We also know that many seniors are less informed about technology than the younger folks are. Is that a barrier?
So often, people say "My ______ can't hear worth a darn, and it's driving me nuts because s/he won't do anything about it!" Have you ever said or heard that statement?
So why do so many people refuse to get help for hearing loss?
Is it time for you or someone you know to talk openly about it?
