In brief: Find support

Groups like the hearing loss association of america and self help for hard of hearing people can provide emotional support for those with hearing loss.
Depression can be a common result of hearing loss and isolation, so please also consult a mental health professional.

Unfortunately it is really difficult.
Care givers should be understanding and kind and help the hearing impaired. Engage them in day to day activities, interact with family members. If they are clinically depressed and withdrawn get help from a psychiatrist.
