Hearing loss and balance disorders increase with age. But did you know hearing and balance degenerate independently; therefore, they should be evaluated separately?
Attend this one-hour webinar for an overview of hearing loss and balance disorders in older adults, including signs, symptoms, and treatment options to help improve the quality of life. The discussion covers tips to assess the conditions and effective communication strategies you can integrate into your care setting.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify common symptoms of hearing loss and cite treatment options.
- Demonstrate and explain strategies for improving communication with older adults.
- Identify signs/symptoms/effects of balance loss.
- List treatment options for balance loss.
