Christmas Shopping for Someone with a Hearing Loss

Picture of presents under a Christmas treeComing up with Christmas gift ideas for grandparents or your aging parents can be a challenge for many people.  Most seniors have almost everything they need, especially when it comes to the traditional things that are typically given as gifts (blankets, slippers, sweaters, mugs, etc.).

What about gifting assistive technology (AT) that can improve the day-to-day routines of people with age-related disabilities such as hearing, vision, and memory loss?

Below is an outline of just a few ideas of AT devices for hearing to gift at Christmas for someone you know with a hearing loss.  Prices quoted are all taken from Harris Communication; however, they can be purchased from multiple retailers to include; Amazon, Maxi-Aids, and Hear-More.
