Action in Hearing Loss have undertaken a project, funded by the Department of Health, to pilot and test changes that can be made to improve the diagnosis and management of hearing loss amongst care home residents.

As a result of the project’s findings, they have produced this guide and a range of easy-to-use information sheets, to support care home managers and staff to:
- Identify and check for hearing loss
- Improve hearing aid use and management
- Meet communication needs
- Provide assistive listening devices
- Identify and manage other ear problems, such as tinnitus and ear-wax blockages
- Appoint hearing loss champions


The guide can be downloaded here:
