Causes & Support: What Is Deafness?
We tend to think that hearing loss is something that only affects older people. Whilst this is often true, it's not the entire story with over 11 million people in the UK being affected by hearing loss or deafness. There can be many causes from extended exposure to loud noises, illnesses and infections or even pressure-related conditions which can lead to hearing impairment at almost any age.
This can lead to further complications:
- It is estimated that up to 50% of people with hearing loss suffer from mental health issues (compared to 25% of the general population).
- 69% of working-age deaf people are in employment, compared to 79% of the general population.
Whilst some support is often available on the NHS, there are few options available for long or short-term care around your home. A simple Google search will show that care homes for the deaf are a general answer but in our opinion: not the best place for most people.
Deaf care should centre around the person who is directly affected, whilst providing support for their loved ones. It can often be an emotional time and it's imperative to have comfortable, familiar surroundings whilst everyone gets used to the condition.
The Great Care Company is here to provide exceptional care staff for as long as you need them. We bring experience and empathy whilst helping with everything from medication assistance and help around the home to recommendations for a few minor changes that will really help any person with hearing loss to adapt.

Being at home is the safest, most comfortable place you can be. We provide experienced home care staff who will assist with the things you need help with, whilst respecting your privacy and time with your family.
