People in training clapping

Tailor-made, professional training courses to enable workers in residential homes and day centres to:

Understand how having a hearing loss affects people, practically and emotionally.
Improve communication, inclusion, access and quality of life for the people in their care.

‘Hearing Loss in Residential Care’ training courses provide staff and management with:

  • Appreciation of how deafness can affect behaviour.
  • Knowledge of how to recognise the signs of hearing loss.
  • Use of hearing aids to gain a better understanding of the difficulties of adjusting to amplified and artificial sound.
  • Experience in using an induction loop, which helps residents to participate in activities better.
  • Practice in re-tubing hearing aids so they work more effectively.
  • Skills in clear communication with deaf people.
  • Hands-on experience with equipment such as alerting devices and personal television amplifiers.
