Many Reasons Why A Nursing Home Would Greatly Benefit From Having Hearing Helpers Available
Your patients miss a lot of what is being said. Mistakes are made because of a lack of communication, lack of understanding, and therefore a lack of compliance. If your people have hearing aids, you can't tell if they are turned off or on. You also can't tell if the batteries are functional, weak, or dead.
Most Elderly People Do Have Hearing Loss To Some Degree. These Hearing Helpers Will Help You, Your Staff, And Your Patients In Many Ways
-Cuts down on mistakes made by staff who think the patients understood what they said.
-Cuts down on mistakes by patients who think they understand what the staff said.
-Cuts down on background noise. Not having to raise your voice talking with people, plus the patient can turn down the TV volume so the sound doesn't bother others.
-The happiness of patients would increase because they would be able to carry on conversations again and not fake knowing what others are saying. After a while, patients just quit trying to communicate with others and they become more solitary, sad and depressed because they are not enjoying life as much. They live in silence. People need people.
-They are not as likely to lose the Hearing Helpers as you can lay them around your neck when you aren't using them. Plus, they are larger and more colorful than hearing aids.
-Don't have to worry or concern yourself (staff) if the Hearing Aids are 1. On 2. Off 3. Strong Battery 4. Breakage When Dropped 5. Changing Batteries etc etc
-Overall ease of use of the Hearing Helpers and maintaining, finding, keeping.
-In a group setting, you can easily tell who is ready to hear and who isn't because you can see the Hearing Helpers are on their head and in place. Again, easier for staff and better overall for compliance and functioning of the entire program. Things just work better.
-The Hearing Helpers are very inexpensive and will actually quickly save you money as there is nothing else to buy once you have them.
-No need to make special trips to the Doctor for replacement of a hearing aid or check-up or refitting. Saving time, money, and staff convenience.
