  • Should You Include Family in Your Next Audiologist Visit?
    ...utual understanding. # Bring Your Family to the Audiologist When I first began acknowledging my hearing loss, I brought my husband with me to audiologist appointments. His emotional support was helpful, especially as I was still overcoming significant self-imposed stigma about wearing hearing aids. But once I was fitted with my first pair of hearing aids, he stopped coming. Perhaps that was a mistake. Consider taking your family to your next audiologist appointment. The possible benefits include: ## 1. A better understanding of your condition. Hearing loss is hard for people who don't experience it to understand. Showing them data—including your audiogram and speech in noise test results—will put tangible parameters around your hearing loss that may make it easier to grasp. ## 2. Taking your hearing loss more seriously. Having that data explained by an expert—your audiologist—might boost its importance in their minds. It might help them to take your hearing loss more seriously and be less willing to unfairly blame you for lack of effort when communication breaks down. ## 3. Motivation for communication success. It takes two to tango meaning your family's participation is needed for good communication. Involving them in your treatment creates buy-in and boosts their motivation to carry out its steps, turning your family into your best cheerleader whenever your confidence or energy wavers. ## 4. Contributing important information to the audiologist. Your family can share their perspective on which communication situations are most challenging for you and provide an outside perspective on how well you are able to manipulate your devices. The more audiologists know about your life, the better they can tailor their recommendations to your specific needs. ## 5. A second set of ears. Appointments are often packed with information, which may not be supplied in writing. Similar to any important medical consultation, two brains are better than one in catching every detail. ## 6. Reinforcing communication best practices. Ask your audiologist to share tips for better conversations. While these may be the same requests you make on a daily basis—face me when talking to me, speaking slowly and clearly, etc.—your family may give them more credence when they come from an expert. # Shari Eberts Shari Eberts is a hearing health advocate, writer, speaker and avid Bikram yogi.
