Hearing Loss: Tips on Talking to Your Loved One

A decline in a loved one’s hearing can be stressful and emotional for everyone. There are four positive tactics family members can take to help someone they love deal with the challenges.

Hearing loss is an emotional and physical journey. The hard of hearing person needs to overcome stereotypes, their own fears, and push past societal barriers. Sometimes, it’s easier for someone suffering with hearing loss to deny the problem. This kind of denial can be frustrating for family members, especially when they’re asked to take up the slack by speaking louder, repeating things, or relating something that was said by another. This exhausting behavior, as the article How to Talk to Your Loved One about Hearing Loss shows, is not really helpful.

Denial is a coping mechanism that gives you time to adjust to distressing situations — but staying in denial can interfere with treatment or your ability to tackle challenges. You can’t force your loved one out of denial, but you can gently approach them about their hearing loss. Below is advice from top experts on how to help your loved one past denial.
