DOES MY LOVED ONE HAVE A HARD TIME HEARING WHAT ME AND MY KIDS ARE SAYING? People with hearing loss miss out on incidental language. They hear speech babble, but have a hard time differentiating words.
DO THEY AVOID CERTAIN EVENTS AND ENVIRONMENTS BECAUSE IT IS TOO NOISY? Hearing speech in noise is very challenging for people with hearing loss. Speech sounds get camouflaged by background noises and reverberation in the environment.
ARE THEY CHOOSING TO STAY HOME AND SEEM MORE ISOLATED? Instead of feeling isolated in public places because they cannot hear well, people with hearing loss often chose to stay home at the expense of missing out on the events and socialization they used to enjoy.
