Father’s Day is coming fast and for many of us that means spending time with dad! However, if your dad has hearing loss, it can also be a time to make a special effort to try and communicate.  Healthy Hearing recently came out with a fantastic list of steps to help make communicating with your dad this Father’s Day easier on both of you, including:
  • Talk face to face
  • Talk at eye level
  • Make sure you are communicating in well-lit areas
  • Be positioned in an effective way for communicating
  • Don’t speak from another room
  • Speak clearly
  • Don’t cover your mouth
  • Eliminate background noise
  • Take turns speaking
  • Stay close by
  • Be attentive

If you can’t be there to talk face to face, get him a CaptionCall phone so he can hear and read what you say when you call.  Hearing loss doesn’t have to slow your dad down this weekend.  Help him feel part of the conversation!
 
CaptionCall is an active advocate for people with hearing loss.  We encourage people with hearing loss to seek treatment early and to actively manage their hearing health.  Our mission is to help people with hearing loss stay socially connected for a longer, happier, healthier life!
