Advice on Hearing Loss

Advice on Hearing Loss

Lets focus on communicating rather than hearing!

Some good advice from a hearing health advocate, Gael Hannan “My goal should not be to hear again or hear better but to communicate to the best of my ability in all areas of my life”.

Her advice:

  1. Be honest about your hearing loss
  2. Be knowledgable about your hearing loss
  3. Consult a hearing health care professional
  4. Be assertive about your hearing loss
  5. Be an advocate for your self.
