Communicating with the Hearing Impaired for Home Health Care training course

Having a strength in communication is critical for anyone working with others, but it can be particularly critical for home health care professionals interacting with a variety of individuals daily. Often, the effects of aging, illness, and disabilities can become barriers to effective caregiver-patient communication, especially when patients lose some or all ability to hear the spoken word. Paying attention to another’s communication needs is one of the most important duties of the home health care professional. This course will discuss the communication process, discuss how hearing loss can be a barrier to communication, and how health care professionals can overcome those barriers.
