What to do When a Loved One Looses Hearing, September 12
It can be frustrating for people to watch a loved one lose his or her hearing. However, there are a few things that people can do to make this process easier for their loved ones. People who are losing their hearing often have to do things slower than other people. That is why they need their loved ones to be patient with them. People whose family and friends are patient with them will be able to cope with their hearing loss better.
Loved ones of a person who has suffering hearing loss also have to be understanding. People who have suffered hearing loss often feel as though they are a burden on their loved ones. If they have loved ones that are understanding, they will not feel like a burden.
Deaf people need their family and friends to be understanding of their situation, but they do not want people to feel sorry for them all the time. Deaf people understand that they have special needs, but they also like to do things for themselves. Loved ones of a person who has suffered hearing loss should help as much as they can, but they should also let the person do for him or herself.
