I’m going to share what devices are helpful for the deaf and hard of hearing community that work in the healthcare field. This goes for ANYONE, elderly including. I mean you can basically google it. Just kidding, I’ll help you out here. Here’s what I know that can assist you in many ways possible.
Clear mask – I don’t believe these are on the market yet. There’s a pre-order link. I know so many of us would benefit from it, especially if there isn’t an interpreter available or your own friends or family to help you.
Amplified stethoscope – There’s even a Bluetooth option that connects to your phone so you can play it back.
CapTel Phones – These days, most offices still require phone calls to make appointments or bill payments and such. The list could go on. There are foundations that will give you assisted devices for free such as here.
Apps for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing – There’s plenty of apps you can add to your phone to assist you in daily life.
I have InnoCaption App on hand if my husband isn’t authorized to help me with a credit card or similar issue. I haven’t been able to use it in a while as most companies are communicating via emails and online chat! This could be something you may need to use on your cellphone as an entrepreneur medical professional.
Now, this may be off topic but if we can get closed captioning on screen in movie theaters, that would be even a better movie night out! It’s 2018 right? Just saying…
