Hearing Aid Candidacy and Selection
MC is a 75-year-old female who scheduled an appointment in the audiology clinic. MC is accompanied by her son who reports his mother’s hearing has deteriorated to the point that he is having greater difficulty communicating with her, and he is concerned about her living alone. When asked, MC admits she sometimes has trouble hearing her grandchildren and occasionally struggles hearing her friends at her bridge club. She enjoys watching television, going to the symphony, and gardening. She also reports she has arthritis in her fingers that is bothersome when the weather is bad.
