Comfort Keepers Personal Care Assistant Can Help Seniors Suffering From Hearing Loss
Companion home care is great for seniors who have some hearing loss. Seniors who have hearing loss may need some extra help at home, but they may hesitate to let their family members know that they are having trouble hearing. Age-related hearing loss is very common in seniors. It occurs gradually most of the time and some seniors don’t even realize that they are experiencing hearing loss. But you may notice that your loved one is speaking louder than normal, turning up the TV constantly, or asking you to repeat things louder when you speak to them. If you have noticed your loved one exhibiting any of these symptoms of hearing loss you should strongly encourage them to get a hearing test from their doctor.
How a Personal Care Assistant Can Help
It can be very isolating for seniors to not be able to hear well. They may be embarrassed that they can’t hear well and withdraw from going out of the house and interacting with people because they can’t hear well. Companion home care can go with seniors as they shop, run errands, go to the doctor or go to see friends so that they won’t feel embarrassed or awkward. A senior caregiver can be a big help to seniors who struggle with their hearing.
At home, a caregiver can provide companionship and conversation as well as homecare tasks like answering the phone or answering the doorbell for your loved one so that they don’t have to worry about missing phone calls or packages.
