Time for a quick thought. Does he hear you and your squeaky voice? Does he listen to music anymore or blast the TV? Is he getting a bit paranoid because he misses parts of conversations and thinks it is about him? Hearing aids are quality of life. They also sting some peoples egos as they feel like they are now old or are vain about how it looks. If they can't hear phone conversations or a siren when in the car I would say, yes, he should get the hearing aid.
My mother in law knew she had been deaf in one ear her whole life because of measles as a child. She refused to get a hearing aid because she didn't want to look old. She finally got one in her seventies because most of her friends also had them and were tired of repeating things to her. Plenty of Rock and Roll musicians have them. If he is missing things in life, or he could be in danger at work or driving, it is time for him to do so. Good luck in that conversation. And if he wants it, so much the better as the ones they have these days are pretty amazing. I suggest if he is resistant, I am married thirty years, that it had best be with his favorite dinner. Lol. Take care dear and I hope it works out for him. Karen
