Improving communication for people with hearing loss, their family and friends

Starting the journey together

Talking to and communicating with other people is a vital part of everyday life for all of us. Hearing loss can make communication more difficult. However, communication can be improved and made easier by working together.

Communication is a two way process, involving not only the person with hearing loss, but also those around them. Support from family and friends can lead to more successful communication and effective hearing aid use by people with hearing loss. It can take time to get used to hearing through hearing aids.

This video is for anyone affected by hearing loss; either personally, or as a family member or friend of someone with hearing loss.
