Assistive Devices for Seniors with a Hearing Impairment

Feb 21, 2013 10:20AM
Question: My father has a hearing impairment. Are there any devices that could help him realize he has visitors at the door?

Home Remodeling Expert,  Mike Dodd
Most states have as assistive technology department or division that address the needs of people with disabilities. They would be an excellent resource for anyone with questions regarding the types of devices that are available specific to their condition.

As it relates to hearing impaired individuals, there are a number of products on the market that employ radio frequency (RF) technology that allow devices to communicate with other devices in an effort to alert someone of an event. To alert a homeowner that someone is at their door, for instance, a unit could be installed that would activate and flash interior lamps in specific rooms, shake or vibrate a bed, or light up a dedicated icon like a traditional doorbell. These systems will not interfere with other RF-controlled devices and are fairly economical.
