DrGosalia, LLC announced the release of its first book, Papa, Can You Hear Me Now? The author, Dr Amit Gosalia, AuD, delivers a “simple, yet familiar story of the impact of hearing loss on relationships.” As is known, side effects to hearing loss may include cognitive decline, ability to communicate, financial/economic impact, isolation, depression, anxiety, to name a few, and thus the importance of getting a baseline evaluation is imperative, according to Gosalia’s announcement.
“For almost 20 years as an audiologist, the number of times I’ve heard patients or their family members tell me about how they missed out on communicating with their loved ones, has to be in the hundreds,” said Gosalia. “Part of the hesitation to getting help is denial or even the lack of awareness that anything is actually wrong. I wanted to share this story so that more people would consider getting their hearing evaluated to avoid all of the potential side effects to hearing loss.”
The story revolves around Anna and what she experiences when her grandfather, Papa, struggles to communicate with her, due to his hearing loss. After seeing an audiologist and getting treatment, Papa’s relationship with his granddaughter changes for the better.
