We all know mums can be protective when it comes to our children, no matter race, financial status or disability. Being deaf mute or blind mum can be challenging without the right devices.
The six sense of parent
Our innate sense being Site, Hearing, Speech, Smell, Touch and the build-in Instinct would be perfect but don’t need to be perfect, all they want is to give love to their children unconditionally with what they got and be able to protect. We can’t have everything but we can benefit from aids and devices to improve our daily life specially when you got a child, you want to hear when the wake up, you want to make them laugh, sing to them, comfort them and many more.
Deafness can affect speech therefore someone who can not hear can be mute. Having hearing device can save speech, but with the new technology everything is possible. We got devices to help with speech as well.
Being stress free is not possible in real life but being able to enjoy the basic all by ourself with devices made specially to assist us.
Most people with loss of hearing feel the positive impact on their social life and relationships when they start using hearing aids. Also, the family of the person using the assistive device found their relationships improve. A person with hearing loss often feel lonely unable to keep up with the conversation. People with hearing aid become more outgoing, and feel free. Using hearing device not only impact the person, but people around them.The quality of life become better once a relative start using assisting device.
When you’re able to listen to music, to participate in conversations, go out, hear your children, family or people clearly, both your personal and work life benefit. There is nothing precious than that.
Deaf parent who use devices like: Doorbell light, Phone ringer light, Fire alarm light, Baby monitor vibrator, Alarm clock vibrator, are likely to live their life more independently and with improved confidence.
This world is surrounded by noise everywhere we go. We got warning sounds like smoke alarms and sirens are noises that need to be heard for emergencies and safety.
Being able to hear on-coming traffic, horns and car sounds are very important. I give the example of Vassery a young boy who was hit by a car on the side of the road because he could not hear the sound. It’s important to be able to hear safety sounds because it’s impossible to see everything.
There are three different ways where deafness can impact on a person :
Low education and job opportunities due to the communication.
Social isolation because of communication difficulty with others and reduced access to services.
Low self-esteem and confidence due to emotional problems.
Stay Connected with The new world
Thanks to modern technology, there are many products out there that can help you to overcome the difficulties of hearing loss. While some will help you to hear more clearly, others will help to keep you safe and connected to the outside world. There are different types of hearing aids on the market to suit lifestyle and severity of hearing.
“A process of meaningful interaction among human beings. More specifically, it is the process by which meanings are perceived and understandings are reached among human beings.” According to McFarland.
For me communication is the essence of life.The main issue is found around people not recognising their condition and therefore are reluctant for help.
