What is the potential impact of hearing loss on family members?

To answer this question, we were lucky to have a caregiver for one of our patients who writes beautifully and with her Dad’s consent allowed us share their story below:

The Silent Wall Between Us
Edward had always been the life of the party, drawing people close with his warmth and animated stories. However, as he aged, his family noticed a drastic change. He stopped contributing to conversations, retreated to his room during family gatherings, and seemed to “ignore” his grandchildren’s excited calls for their beloved grandpa.

His daughter, Lisa, felt the strain the most. Many times she had tried to share her daily experiences, only to receive a curt nod or a distant “Hmm” from her father. She felt he was drifting away, ensconced in a shell she couldn’t penetrate. The grandchildren began to ask, “Why does grandpa not like playing with us anymore?”

When family disputes arose, they spiralled out of context quickly. Lisa would get frustrated, feeling that her father was deliberately avoiding her concerns. Whispered talks began circulating in the family. “Is dad getting rude? Is he deliberately avoiding us? Why won’t he engage?”

However, it wasn’t Edward’s desire to detach. He was gradually losing his hearing, and with it, a piece of his identity. Misunderstandings bred resentment, and slowly the jovial Edward was labelled aloof. The chasm widened, and so did the impact on his family, especially Lisa. She missed the father who would lend her an ear, share her joys, and console her sorrows.

Then, one day, Lisa came across an article on third-party disability caused by hearing loss. The realisation dawned upon her – it wasn’t detachment but disability. She immediately booked an appointment at Verified Hearing.

After thorough testing, Edward was fitted with a pair of state-of-the-art hearing aids. The change was immediate and heartwarming. Conversations flowed, laughter echoed, and the once silent Edward was back, narrating tales and playing with his grandchildren.

In a heartfelt conversation with Lisa, he admitted, “I felt trapped, unable to communicate. I feared becoming a burden, so I withdrew. But now, it feels like a wall has been torn down. I’m back with my family.”

For Lisa and her family, the intervention was a revelation. They understood the importance of early intervention and became advocates, sharing their story to raise awareness. Edward’s journey became a testament that love, understanding, and timely action can mend bridges and rejuvenate relationships.
