Things To Consider with Hearing Loss

When one has hearing loss, the major concern is safety.

  • If a person is driving, they may not hear directional signals or sirens.
  • At home, they may not hear the microwave beep or other items when cooking.
  • They may step on a knife or fork because they didn't hear it hit the floor.
  • Other items they may not hear are smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, telephone or the door bell.
  • If their spouse falls, they may not be able to hear them calling for help.
