What can I do if someone I care about has difficulty hearing?

If someone you know suffers from hearing loss, you already know it’s a challenging time for everyone close to that person including family, friends, colleagues and coworkers. Sometimes, the change can be so gradual or subtle that you’re not sure whether it’s actually a hearing loss. Unlike many conditions, hearing loss is often hard to detect in its early stages.
If you believe your loved one is suffering from undiagnosed hearing loss, encourage him or her to contact us and request an audiological evaluation to check for a hearing problem. In most cases, the hearing test will detect a hearing loss if one is present, as well as determine the type of loss. Based on the hearing test, the hearing professional can recommend the use of a hearing instrument or other treatment.
