Best Doorbell for the Deaf
When a family member or friend loses their hearing, it is a potentially life-altering experience; all of a sudden, they can feel cut off and isolated from the rest of the world. Everyday activities that they had previously taken for granted, such as talking, watching the television or listening to music, can disappear almost overnight. In a rush to help them, it can be all too easy to exacerbate the issue by making ill-informed choices, which inadvertently further removes their independence. One of the frustrations that anyone with a newly developed hearing impairment often complains about is the inability to identify when someone is at the door.

Because we can deeply for our family and friends, we want to do as much as we can to help them. This is a natural human reaction but, unfortunately, can lead to anger and resentment for a deaf person or someone who has severe hearing loss.
