Hearing Loss in Senior
Have you ever imagined what could be your life without hearing and especially when you want to listen to the voice of your loved ones? No, it won’t be easy to tackle it for anyone. Seriously, for most of us, it’s hard to imagine what life would be like without these essential auditory senses if we are concerned about senior citizens.
For them, it can greatly reduce their quality of life. Not only it affects their physical, emotional health but also their social functionality as well, which is quite hindering for their survival. It is also very irritating for them when they want to participate in a conversation happily but are not able to hear even other people’s voices properly, which in turn, recursively creates a depression in their mind.
Those people who are suffering from these kinds of hearing disorders feel like staying home and often remain disconnected rather than participating in any social gathering for meaningful conversations, a family function or a party. Most of the time intuitively they perceive that they will not be able to understand what others are saying about them.
Quite annoying and frustrating right?
Now sadly that is the unfortunate reality of the Hearing loss. Typically the persons who are nearly around 60 years or maybe above, they are the one most probably facing these kinds of problems in their daily life and it is really difficult for them to survive without hearing.
Some Emotional Impact that stem Hearing Loss For Seniors includes Stress, Depression, Withdrawal from Social Life, Loneliness, Anger, Frustration, Decreased Personal safety, Poor Health and more.
If you have come into your observation you may find that senior citizens suffering from hearing loss concerns are a bit low, slow and even not responding to you with complete awareness and happiness.
The reason is that they are under depression and are not sharing it with openness to anyone else. One can also personally observe that they are behaving irritated and angry, but actually they are just hiding their personal health issues and are not able to share their problems with others. This is an emotional breakdown which can harm their life and their overall health and it doesn’t however operate in the vacuum.
