Hearing problems in older adults is very common because they are aging. In my aging and health class we learned all about how we age and when we truly start to age. We specifically talked about older adults and the problems that they are constantly facing because of their age, and prebyacusis is one of them. This hearing loss is the most common for people who are around the age of 55; and it is not being able to head high frequency sounds, and usually it is effected in both ears. It is rarely just affected in one ear, unless their hearing has diminished completely. Older people may find it hard to hear the phone ringing or the radio on so they end up 'blasting" the radio so they can hear it again. It annoys younger people, but we have to think about how the older people must feel too! Here is the link with more information:
