Health Tip: Coping With Hearing Loss

Suggestions for people with below-average hearing

(HealthDay News) -- Hearing loss affects many people -- especially seniors -- and can make socializing and communicating difficult.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions for someone with hearing loss:

  • Make sure you tell friends and loved ones about your hearing loss. Don't try to keep it a secret.
  • Encourage people to look directly at you when they speak.
  • Tell your loved ones that you need them to speak a bit more loudly and clearly. But they don't need to shout or speak slowly.
  • Turn off background noise such as radio or TV when possible.
  • Pay attention to background noise in public places. Avoid sitting near the kitchen at a restaurant or in front of live music.
