I want to help someone else

If a loved one is suffering with hearing loss
there are a number of things you can do to help.

Book a hearing test

1. Do they often ask you to repeat yourself?

2. Do they constantly increase the volume on the television?

3. Do they ask you to speak more clearly?

4. Have they started to withdraw themselves from group discussions?

If someone around you suffers from hearing loss, you may be eager to help them. However, it is not always that easy. Convincing others to have their hearing tested can be challenging. 

It is common for people to not accept that they have a hearing loss. Perhaps you have noticed that your loved one has adopted an attitude of denial or they become angry when you make remarks to them. This defensive attitude is completely natural as many people struggle to accept that they are suffering.

We have put together a 7 step guide on how to help a loved one if they are suffering with hearing difficulties.



There are 11 million people in the UK that have difficulty hearing.

More than 40% of people over 50 years old suffer with a form of hearing loss. This figure rises to 71% of people over the age of 70 so don't let someone you know be part of these statistics.




Booking a hearing test for a loved one

You can book a hearing test for a loved one easily as long as you have their consent to do so.  

We need to speak to the person that will have the test so if you are calling it is best to do so when you are with your loved one. They can confirm they are happy for you to book the test on their behalf.

If you use the online form we still need to speak to the person who will have the hearing test. As long as you have their consent you can use their details and we will call them.
