Dear Wife

I understand that it is often emotionally very hard for the family members of a person with a hearing loss. Please be patient with him and understands that he shares your communication frustrations. The best would be to send him for a full hearing evaluation to an audiologist so that one can find out exactly how great and where the damage is. He or she will then be able to tell you what the next best step will be. One could try to fit him with hearing aids. Please let me know if you need a referral to an Audiologist in your area (izabelle@widex.co.za)

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
