Hearing disorders affect one-third of older adults and may stem from an earwax buildup, ruptured eardrum, ear infection, or tumor growth. Symptoms to watch for include avoidance of social interaction, complaints of a ringing sensation in the ears, difficulty understanding others or participating in conversations, or muffled speech. Caregivers may need to adopt alternative, more clear methods of communication or assist the patient with a hearing aid. Patients with hearing problems will need help speaking with health providers and family members, running errands, answering the phone, and participating in other various daily activities.
