How to helped a loved one with hearing loss
You would be forgiven for getting frustrated whilst trying to communicate with a loved one who has a hearing loss.
Constantly having to repeat yourself over the phone, being misunderstood or simply being ignored as your significant other just didn't hear you at all is enough to try anyone's patience.
