This is the first book written and published that is dedicated solely to hearing loss in older adulthood and, importantly, the processes involved in serving the special needs of older adults who are hearing impaired. It is a concise book, but provides important information for those entering many fields that have as their intent to serve older adults either as a supplement to other texts on communication disorders in aging, or as a concise primary text.
"...based on a useful concept: A practical guide for addressing hearing problems in older adults. ...The book's short length, small format and large friendly font make it very readable. It is aimed at students and clinicians whose work involves addresses communication difficulties due to age-related hearing loss. Real life case studies are included and these make good illustrative examples."
