Why this tool?

Living Well enables people with hearing loss to identify the communication situations in their daily lives that are most important to them. By learning where your client’s priorities lie, you can keep the conversation relevant and focus your treatment plan for improved outcomes. This makes it easy for you to recommend communication strategies and appropriate hearing equipment.

Living Well’s flexible design makes it possible for you to personalize your care. Using the tool’s pictures of everyday communication situations can help jog the client’s memory. Together, you can set goals to improve communication and formulate a plan for achieving those goals.

Living Well is also useful as a teaching tool. By role playing scenarios, students and professionals can practice person-centered counseling skills. The tool is based on the principles of WHO’s International Classification of Functioning and Disability.
