LayoutMessage From Our President
An old Chinese proverb goes, “To listen well, is as powerful a means of influence as to talk well, and is as essential to all true I often think my listening skills need improvement. And I defi- nitely could use some knowledge and tips on communicatingwith those who are hard of hearing. Probably most of us could, and those who suffer from hearing loss might agree.
Because of its importance to older adults, better communication with the hearing impaired is the topic for this quarter’s education session. On Wednesday, May 4, we will have the opportunity to learn about improving verbal communications with the hearing impaired, strategies for minimizing misunderstandings, tips on identifying hearing loss, and strengthening listening skills. The program will be conducted byDr. Barbara McLendon, an audiologist with 20 years of experience. She is the ownerof The Hearing Center of Chestertown. The event is not to diagnose hearing loss orto discuss assistive devices but rather to increase our awareness and improve our skills. We would like attendance to include those who serve the public, such as restaurant servers and store salespeople.
