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.

Cubex Weekly TIP – Hearing & Cognition

On 01, Mar 2018 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP: HEARING & COGNITION

 

This week Adam Shulberg talks about the relationship between hearing and cognition.

Cognition is a term referring to the brain processes involved in acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences and the senses.

We live in an organised world of sound where cognition, attention, memory and the sense of hearing interact. Each plays a crucial role in listening. The direct relationship between hearing and cognition affects how well we use our hearing to function in everyday life.

When we experience hearing loss and communication difficulties, participating in conversation requires use of more of our cognitive resources. Although it may appear that the communication problems experienced is due to hearing loss alone, often this is not the primary issue and there are underlying cognitive factors that need consideration.
