Hearing Helpline: Hearing Support

Hearing impairments include an extensive range of causes and severities, from congenital disabilities to diseases, to deafness. People can go deaf suddenly as a complication of a virus, or lose their hearing over time because of disease, nerve damage, or injury caused by noise.Loss of hearing can be a very traumatic experience and requires a great deal of support emotionally and physically. Regardless of how severe or mild you or your loved one's hearing impairment is, there are plenty of resources and products that can help you and your loved one live an enjoyable and fulfilling life.

Sharing your own experiences about managing or caring for a loved one with hearing impairments or learning more about the challenges and successes others have experienced, the ExtendaTouch vision support group will enable you to connect with actual people who experience the same daily challenges. ExtendaTouch is entirely free and is packed full of stories, friendly advice, and resources that can help you feel part of a positive group. All types of people gather to share resources and opportunities that can help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones.

My grandfather and mother both had hearing problems. My mom used tiny in ear hearing aids. They were almost invisible, and needed regular battery changes. They were never as good as the larger hearing aids. I understood how people with hearing issues do not want to wear obtrusive devices, and it seems to be a decision between hearing well and looking good.
