Almost 50% of people over the age of 60 experience some degree of hearing loss. Incorporate the right hearing technologies to make your retirement spaces accessible.
The degree of hearing loss seniors experience can vary greatly. Some suffer minor hearing loss, or hearing loss within certain bands of the audible spectrum. However, some seniors experience severe hearing loss where they have to strain to hear anything that is being said.
This can make engaging in conversations with visitors and staff difficult and frustrating, but can also be potentially dangerous if your residents don’t hear safety announcements.
Keep your residents safe, remove communication barriers for easier and more enjoyable conversations, and make all of your spaces accessible to your residents and their visitors with the right types of hearing technology for seniors centers and retirement residences!
