While it’s important to advocate for a significant other with hearing loss, be aware that you can over-do it.
I have occasionally been on the receiving end of the overdoing. It was embarrassing. But it galvanized me to take responsibility for my own communication needs. In some situations, I might not disclose my hearing loss or stand up for myself. I run the risk of “interference” and that’s on me.
Here’s a visual analogy (click on YouTube link below).
So what’s a reasonable amount of support, then?
These suggestions from Dr. Rachael Cook are just right, IMO.
