Deaf Awareness

One of the most helpful technology options for seniors with hearing loss, in my opinion, is the Neosinig Hearing Amplifier. It would be especially beneficial in the acclimation phase, when a resident moves into a new community and gets to know their neighbors and new friends. The technology device would also help the resident in maintaining open lines of communication with friends, loved ones, and caregivers, as well as allow for continued independence with activities of daily life.

Studies have shown that seniors who regularly communicate with loved ones or others in their communities are generally healthier and happier. They experience lower rates of chronic illness, less anxiety and depression, have better cognitive health, improved mobility, and even increased longevity. Hearing loss and deafness affect all ages, patience and understanding go a long way. Low-tech can still work great too; a white board with some fun colored markers!
