Find Adults and Parents Dealing with Hearing Loss with HearingExchange

Submitted by Paula Rosenthal on March 8, 2009 – 8:42 pm11 Comments

istock_000000606810xsmallI’m always thinking of ways to help assist deaf and hard of hearing people as well as families dealing with hearing loss. Often, there are very few in our live communities who understand what we’re going through. Please take moment and read what I have to offer and the ways you can get in touch with me and others with hearing loss.

I have been blogging often about hearing loss and related issues at HearingExchange. I hope you will drop by and leave your comments on posts that interest you. Send in your 10 Random Thoughts on Deafness to be published on the site.

Want to stay abreast of my HearingExchange blog posts easily? You can get the latest blog posts in your email inbox by subscribing to the feed here.

Be sure to join the growing HearingExchange Facebook Group and participate in the discussions.

If you think the HearingExchange Teens Facebook Group for High Schoolers and Young Adults is more appropriate for you, check it out today.

Want to know what I’m up to or have a question for me? Follow me on Twitter by clicking on “Follow” on my Twitter page. Don’t know what Twitter is or how to use it? No problem, this simple 10 step article on Twitter 101 will get you started.

I’ve also started a HearingExchange TwitterGroup to make it easier for adults and parents dealing with hearing loss to find one another on Twitter. Check it out and see what’s being said daily.

Lastly, I’ll be switching servers shortly (hopefully this week) as the one HearingExchange is on is quite full and slow. Keep an eye out for a new, improved HearingExchange as I’ll be fine-tuning the site soon.

As always, let me know if there is any way I can assist you. I’m always happy to hear from you.

Best,

Paula Rosenthal, Founder

    Paula, we need to tell the companies that make amplified phones that there needs to be easier to understand amplified phones for the elderly. They seem to think all that is needed is large keys. Many elderly people have hearing problems but can’t understand complicated phones, this needs to change.

    Hi,
    My husband is nearly totally deaf. He wears Hearing aids, and even with them he has trouble distinguishing words. I can tell when he does not know what I said, he has a blank look and nods his head. I repeat the words or phrase louder and sometimes that works, or sometimes he says very loudly and not nicely, that I should not speak so loudly. It is just like when I was a kid with my mother when she slapped me around sometimes and then tried to hug me at other times. I feel like I am in the twilight zone.
    I do not know how to proceed. I am learning Sign language again, ( I had in college translating for the church; ) but when I speak to him and sign he gets upset also. and I do face him so he can read my lips.
    I do believe if we were both deaf completely it would be best. But, I guess we all work with what we have.
    But I need to get some advice.
    Please advise.
    KH

    Dear Karen, I grew up misunderstanding my dad’s hearing loss. I would talk very loud assuming he could hear me, but found it irritating him. Until I found myself “in his shoes” at age of 35. Today, as a hearing impaired using hearing aids, I try people in my family first, to 1) understand that scream to the impaired person does not help; 2) go get themselves avaluated by a speech therapist, because very often people learn that they actually do not have a good and clear verbal communication (for many reasons); 3) review their own expectations/frustration and feelings about their “not so perfect” loved one, so they develop coping skills; 4) understand that paranoia is a common down side of those who started losing hearing after years of being able to hear well. These are just some thoughts from what I have being through in the last decade. Hope it can answer you a little bit. Love and patience with your husband because your relationship in more than a pair of ears.
