Supporting Someone with Hearing Loss: A Guide by Nano Hearing Aids
Nano digital hearing aids can make a difference for people living with hearing loss. Learn more about various ways of supporting someone.
Living with hearing loss is tough. Young children wearing hearing aids feel different at school and adults who wear hearing aids may feel nervous about looking different or being taken as incompetent at work. If you live with someone who suffers from hearing loss and is struggling, there are a number of things that you can do to help and to show support.
Nano Hearing Aids, the company behind the new revolutionary digital hearing aids, released a guide to support your friends and loved ones who may suffer from hearing loss. Besides helping them obtain the best possible hearing aid, the company also recommend the following:
1. Get Your Hearing Checked Together
When a loved one or a friend has trouble hearing and is going to the audiologist, you can accompany them there and offer to get your hearing checked too. This is particularly important if you are over 40 years old as you too could be losing your hearing slowly and you may not be aware of it. Therefore, for your own sake and in support of the other person, go ahead and get checked.
2. Adjust How You Communicate with the Person
There are changes that you can make when you talk to the person. You have to stop shouting from another room and you have to stop multi-tasking and be in front of that person when you talk. Before speaking to the person, make sure you have good lighting and little background noise. Then use the person’s name to get their attention before you speak. Then maintain eye contact and give the person an opportunity to speech-read while you speak at a normal rate and keep your mouth uncovered. Use simple sentences and rephrase your words if the person does not understand. Context matters so when you change the topic, let the person know first. Stay positive and maintain a sense of humor.
3. Show Empathy
When a person loses their hearing, they do not just come to terms with it. They actually go through a grieving process. The grieving process generally involves anger, guilt, denial, fear, confusion, sadness and loneliness. If your loved one or friend wants to talk about this new development, be willing to lend an ear so that you can better understand what they are going through as a result of losing part of their hearing.
4. Be an Activist and a Supporter
You can be an activist and an active supporter of your friend or loved one. For example, when you have to be with other people in a group, let them know in advance about the problem and give them tips and tactics to enhance communication with the affected person. You can even sit next to that person in the group and let him/her know that if they miss something, they can turn to you to get the missed information. When you visit a hotel or conference center ask them if they provide services or rooms equipped for people who struggle to hear. Suggest improvements to management.

It is rechargeable, and it has a low-battery warning, which makes it easy for users to recharge it before it runs out. It is tiny and fits perfectly behind the ear and remains invisible. The wire-thin receiver is also invisible. Discretion is therefore assured for those who want it. It also has large up and down volume buttons that are easy to use.
