Communication tips for the festive season

On 06, Dec 2018 | In Arts & Lifestyle | By Rosie Williams

During the festive season, people tend to find themselves in busy, noisy and distracting environments more often than they might throughout the rest of the year. This can be quite overwhelming or stressful for someone experiencing hearing loss so we have some useful tips to make those events and occasions enjoyable for everyone.

 

Setting the dinner table

If you have a hearing loss, or are hosting a dinner party with a guest who has hearing loss, you’ll want to make sure the table arrangements are suitable for everyone.

This might mean ensuring those with hearing loss are placed further away from the kitchen or music speakers. It may be that someone has a stronger side and would rather sit with the majority of people on one side so make sure that is arranged early on.

Sight plays a big role in communicating clearly so making sure people have a clear view of everyones faces so they can clearly see if someone is talking to them and clearly see their facial expressions.

 

Setting the atmosphere

Background noise itself can cause a problem for those experiencing hearing loss, especially because people tend to speak even louder when there is some background noise. Try to reduce noise by lowering music volume, avoiding plate and pan clattering and if possible, spreading people out so they aren’t all shouting over each other in one place.

 

Utilising sight for better communication

Sight is really important to those with hearing loss, particularly because many hearing aids are directional and may not pick up on someone speaking nearby unless they are facing the direction of the person.

Being able to see peoples faces makes it easier to recognise when someone is speaking, as well as reading facial expressions, lips and body language. Ensure the lighting is not too dark and remove any table obstructions (such as candles) so everyone can clearly see everyone elses face on the table.

 

Don’t be afraid to ask

It’s best for everyone if you can let people know you have a hearing loss and how they can best help you in noisy environments. If you are unable to do that, you could let the host of the event know so that the environment can be adapted to suit you.

Don’t be afraid to ask someone to speak up, or to ask for the background noise to be turned down.

The link between untreated hearing loss, cognitive decline & dementia

On 29, Oct 2018 | In Hear&Now | By Rosie Williams

Readers may remember an international study in the Lancet, reporting that one in three cases of dementia can be prevented if more people looked after their cognitive health throughout their lives.

In the study, middle-aged hearing loss was identified as a major risk to developing dementia. Hearing loss denies people access to cognitively rich environments and can lead to social isolation and depression, leading to a higher risk of cognitive decline.

The study identified that 35% of the risk factors associated with dementia were modifiable, the most prominent being hearing loss which was responsible for 9% of the acceleration of the onset of dementia.
