For Millions With Untreated Hearing Loss, Holiday Season Can be Especially Difficult
Date:11/25/2009

are important aids in communicating, so try to be sure that you have the listener's attention and that the room is well lit.
  • Conversation is greatly enhanced when there is no distracting background noise from a radio or television.
  • Dining out? Choose a quiet restaurant. Noisy conversations and the clatter of dishes and tableware in a crowded dining area are barriers to effective communication.
  • Ask if there is anything you can do to make communication easier. For example, conversation will be much easier to understand in a room with carpeting and well-upholstered furniture than in a room with tiled floors, high ceilings or wooden furniture.
  • While almost all hearing loss can be successfully treated with hearing aids, only 25% of the 36 million Americans with hearing loss have them, according to the Better Hearing Institute, which notes that most hearing aids users report significant improvement in their interpersonal relationships and social lives.

    "Today's digital hearing aids are smaller, smarter and more comfortable than ever before," said Dr. Beyer. "I can think of no greater gift during the holiday season than encouraging a loved one or a friend with untreated hearing loss to consider the impact they could have on their lives."
