4 Helpful Devices for Loved Ones Who Can't Hear Well

Senior Care in Greenwich CT

Senior Care in Greenwich CTWhen your loved one can't hear well, you might be worried that she'll be unsafe or that she'll miss out on a lot that's going on around her. Using some of these devices can help your loved one to live a more normal life.

Adjustable Telephones

Using the telephone can be very difficult for your elderly loved one if she's hard of hearing. Phones that have adjustable volume controls, external speakers, and connectivity to outside speakers can make using the phone so much easier. Some phones even connect to a lamp that flashes when a call comes in or have other visual indicators that your loved one's phone is ringing. If your loved one uses a hearing aid, you also want to find phones that are compatible with hearing aids.

Alarms and Alerts

Your elderly loved one might need an array of different types of alerts and alarms if she can't hear well. Some types of alarms shake the bed if something happens, such as the phone ringing or someone ringing the doorbell. Other alarms might turn on a light or cause an indicator light to flash. These are all excellent ways to make sure that your loved one is aware of what's going on around her.

Headsets for the Television or the Radio

When your loved one is watching television or listening to the radio with others, she might need the volume to be much higher than other people in the room need it to be. This can cause problems unless your loved one has a way to increase the volume for herself. Headsets that plug into the television or the radio can make that job a whole lot easier.

Alternative Alerts for Smoke Detectors

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors let your loved one know about danger, but if she can't hear them they aren't nearly as effective. Some of these devices have alternative alarms and alerts besides audible alarms. Make sure that these alerts work well for your loved one by testing them periodically.
