It pained me to learn that one of my cousins has hearing problems. She is most gracious about it as she is uncomplaining and takes it all in stride. It seems one ear is alright so she tends to tilt her head on the side of her good ear so she could hear what one is saying. I told her that she needs to get herself tested. Hearing aids today are compact and unobtrusive. I think I should point her out to www.hearingaidselite.com so she could see how hearing aids look.
