If you are a father, or if you have a father with a suspected hearing loss, listen to the following excerpt from someone who understands:
Hollywood actor, John Slattery of the popular TV series Mad Men, opened up about his own father Jack Slattery’s struggle with his hearing loss. The actor told PEOPLE magazine: “He was disconnected from the everyday events in his life and our life.”
Slattery and his five siblings started noticing something wasn’t right because they would have to explain things to their father a second time. Eventually, he agreed to get his hearing checked and has been wearing a hearing aid for five years.
“It changed his life,” said Slattery, 54. “We get together a lot. We sit at the dinner table. We play cards. Everything is just easier for him.”
