caregiver (cg) is having difficulty carrying on a conversation with a hearing impaired Care recipient (cr)

Try: Alert the cr to your presence don’t approach the cr from behind or the side don’t cover your mouth with your hand when talking always maintain eye contact don’t turn your head because this makes it more difficult for the cr to see your lips try to visit in a quiet environment without other distracting noises speak up but do not shout because this tends to garble your words speak at a normal speed – not too fast or too slow don’t chew gum while speaking don’t use long or difficult words when the cr is trying to read your lips take a notepad in case the cr doesn’t understand a word or phrase
