How to Help a Loved One With Hearing Loss

It’s natural to want to help someone with hearing loss. Being around someone who struggles to hear can be frustrating. It puts a strain on friends and family, especially when you know that better hearing can improve their quality of life and yours.

Untreated hearing loss can cause a person to lose confidence, withdraw socially, become isolated or even depressed. What appears to be memory loss or dementia may be hearing loss. Depending on the cause of the hearing loss, a person’s balance may be affected.

Trying to get a loved one to take action and deal with their hearing loss isn’t always easy (do the words stubborn and pride come to mind?), but it’s the right thing to do.

We’ve helped concerned family members and friends, just like you, who want to share the gift of better hearing. We can walk you through what to do and say. Don’t wait to help someone suffering from symptoms like these. Be proactive.


  • Share your concerns about their hearing with them. Be tactful and be aware that it’s normal for people to become defensive when you bring up the subject. No one likes to admit it’s their hearing that’s a problem.

  • Encourage them to visit a hearing expert, but don’t get into an argument about it, that’s a lose-lose battle. Mention it and then move to the next step.

  • Call and schedule an appointment with us. Then let your loved one know you did it for them. Most people appreciate your concern and will come in to talk to us and get a hearing test.

  • Remind them that if they see the Registered Hearing Aid Practioner and the hearing tests show they don’t have a hearing loss, that would be good news! 1 out of 20 will flat out refuse to go, which tells you that this isn’t a priority for them or their pride is still getting in the way.

Need suggestions about how to have these conversations? Talk to us.
