There are many things you can do to facilitate communication with a hard-of-hearing person. Get their attention before you speak and face them so they can see you as they will instinctively do some lip reading. Remember to speak clearly, not just loudly, and slow down! Rephrasing is always better than just repeating the same word over and over, and don’t be afraid to manipulate your environment, like moving to a quieter place, or turning off the TV. But, most important, BE PATIENT! Remember that communication can be very frustrating and exhausting for someone with hearing loss.
