Hear Ye, Hear Ye

(Page 2 of 2)

The interesting thing was that only when his memory started to fail did he change his mind and consent to hearing aids. In fact, after he was fitted, he and I resumed our long conversations about a wide variety of topics. The conversations might have been noteworthy due to his memory challenges, but at least I know he heard me.

I don’t ever remember Gramp taking Alka-Seltzer before bedtime as I was growing up, but as his memory disorder increased, we found ourselves constantly replacing hearing aids.  Somehow, he would always find a way to plunk them into the water glass on his night stand.

At least we knew he was safer with the hearing support than without…. “Oh, what a relief it is.”

We are excited to present to you the best new products, services, media and books every year that meet the standards of being called Caregiver Friendly. The entry deadline approaches!
