Seeking support from your friends and family when you have hearing loss.

Communication is a key part of maintaining healthy relationships with family and friends but it’s the first thing to be compromised when someone has hearing loss. Those suffering from hearing loss will often steer clear of conversations and social interaction to avoid any stress, embarrassment or awkward situations. Isolation and withdrawal can have negative effects on your health and well-being and your relationships.

Hearing loss is an invisible condition and can often be mistaken for aloofness, personality changes, even dementia. It is important to talk to your friends and family about the issue so they can better understand what you are going through and change the way they communicate with you.

If you are suffering from hearing loss, both you and your family can work together to make hearing easier:

Taking the first step to talk your friends and family about your hearing loss can be difficult but the more people you talk to, the more support you will have to cope with your hearing loss.

 We are family too! A family owned and managed hearing healthcare centre with over 30 years experience, Total Hearing and Health Morningside can help equip you with the information you need to communicate with your friends and family about your hearing loss.
