A good article in Psychology Today shares Tips when Dining Out with Hearing Loss – you can read the full article here: click here for article
Here are a few highlights from the article:
*Choose a restaurant that has a quieter atmosphere or sound absorbing decor
*Check the restaurant’s reviews to see what others have to say about the noise level
*Ask your friends what their experience was at a particular restaurant
*Find a table next to the wall or in a quiet area – possibly a booth
Last year we were trying to put together a list of local restaurants in the St. Petersburg area that were hearing impaired friendly, but it was a very difficult task since some restaurants were quieter at certain times of the day or day of the week and there wasn’t a norm.
The important thing is to do your research ahead of time and then let the restaurant know that you have specific needs.
We are happy to help you get to your best quality of life through better hearing. Don’t put off getting your hearing checked.
