According to the National Institute for Deafness, approximately one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 has difficulty hearing.

At this time, scientists don't know how to prevent age-related hearing loss. However, you can protect yourself from noise-induced hearing loss by protecting your ears from sounds that are too loud and last too long. It's important to be aware of potential sources of damaging noises, such as loud music, firearms, snowmobiles, lawn mowers, and leaf blowers. Avoiding loud noises, reducing the amount of time you're exposed to loud noise, and protecting your ears with ear plugs or ear muffs are easy things you can do to protect your hearing and limit the amount of hearing you might lose as you get older.

Here are some tips you can use when talking with someone who has a hearing problem:

In a group, include people with hearing loss in the conversation.
Find a quiet place to talk to help reduce background noise, especially in restaurants and at social gatherings.
Stand in good lighting and use facial expressions or gestures to give clues.
Face the person and speak clearly. Maintain eye contact.
Speak a little more loudly than normal, but don’t shout. Try to speak slowly, but naturally.
Speak at a reasonable speed.
Do not hide your mouth, eat, or chew gum while speaking.
Repeat yourself if necessary, using different words.
Try to make sure only one person talks at a time.
Be patient. Stay positive and relaxed.
Ask how you can help.

We are shocked that legislators went home without using the $9 billion budget surplus to ensure access to care for Minnesota's seniors. But there's still a way for lawmakers to make it right! Gov. Walz can call a special session, and they can finish their work!

We need to make sure he knows just how critical it is to send relief! Contact Gov. Walz TODAY! Ask him to call a special session and support the Senate's proposal to pay caregivers the wages they deserve and ensure access to care.
