Living with Hearing Loss
Living with a hearing Loss is intended to support older people to manage the difficulties experienced by losing their hearing. This is achieved by providing access to appropriate information, skills and services in an empathic learning environment.
When a person’s hearing begins to deteriorate, communication becomes hard work. This can cause problems with family and friends or a loss of independence and social life. With the right advice, equipment, and tips for communication, people with hearing loss can continue to lead fulfilled and independent lives.
Since the Covid pandemic we have been offering all of our free courses on Zoom. Now we are able to provide 3 different courses under the Living with Hearing Loss project:
- Lipreading classes
- BSL For FUN
- Peer Support Group Workshops
Whereas previously these courses were available only to older people from London, we are now able to offer them to anyone in the UK with a hearing loss.
Online Lipreading runs for 7 weeks, for one hour per week. This course covers the basics of lipreading. You will gain an understanding of how better lipreading can improve the quality of your communication with others.
Online BSL For Fun runs for 6 weeks, for one hour per week. This course covers how to communicate better using a mixture of fingerspelling, everyday signs, and gestures.
One hour per week, the informal and friendly workshop will focus on sharing your experiences and increasing your confidence in understanding speech. You will learn about the latest technology, how to read and understand audiograms and other communication tips. A guest speaker will join the group to talk about their organisations which support those living with a hearing loss.
