Abstract

Technology and rehabilitative procedures can improve hearing function for the aging adult, thereby improving access to health care and various life activities. The areas of identification, selection, and evaluation of assistive technology are discussed in light of the impact of changes expected in aging adults. The health care provider working with aging adults can be an important source of referral for hearing health care, as well as a user of assistive technology with his or her patients.
