How to handle 62 year old man with severe hearing difficulties?

See audiologist. It sounds as if this man (62 years of age is not that old) has a profound hearing loss. Sometimes an audiologist can give you some help in handling and advising what to do. If the otologist can not help, hearing and speech associations can help. Finally, if the hearing loss is so severe, a cochlear implant may be the answer. See an ear physician.
