Question: Both my husband and I have hearing loss. We have multiple misunderstandings, but we attempt to keep a sense of humor about it. What do you recommend for couples who both have hearing loss?
Laughing at our vulnerabilities goes a long way and having each other to lean on as we journey through the impact of hearing loss and hearing aids on our lives, fuels our courage and optimism.
A recent study showed coping with hearing loss is by no means easy on any couple, but it can be managed effectively with support from each other, our community, our peers, professionals, technology and a strong positive attitude. Keeping communication open breaks down barrier walls that can occur.
To ensure confidence, our providers share communication strategies for patients to use in multiple environments.
