Helpful tips for communicating with hearing loss patients

I am a person with hearing loss:

  • Speak directly to me
  • Speak slowly and clearly; do not shout
  • Attract my attention before you speak
  • Make sure there is enough light on your face so I can try to read your speech
  • Do not shine a light on my face
  • Try to eliminate background noise
  • Use facial expressions and hand gestures to emphasize your feelings
  • Please do not take my cochlear implant or hearing aid away from me because that device may be the best way for me to communicate
  • If all else fails, write to me
