My Mum is moving in with me on Saturday as she is not coping with the isolation in her sheltered flat due to the lockdown.
We have plenty of space for her but her deafness is a real issue for me.
Her TV is so loud that it can be heard from about five houses away. Its one of the main reasons she moved into the flat in the first place. I have very very sensitive hearing and the volume of her TV (or her radio) hurts my ears.
She doesn't sleep well so often has her TV blasting away all night. Many times I've had to get out of bed in the 'wee hours' to ask her to turn it down only to find she's blissfully asleep and its playing to itself!
Does anyone know of any 'personal amplifiers' or any other devices that are available that we could try?
I do use ear plugs and noise cancelling headphones but the ear plugs cause ear infections and I can't get to sleep when wearing headphones!
