Overcoming Loneliness Starts with a Connection
Numerous clinical studies have shown that social isolation can adversely affect the emotional, mental and physical well-being of older adults. One study even found the health impact of loneliness equates to smoking 15 cigarettes a day.1 For many, hearing loss only adds to feelings of detachment from friends and family.
Fortunately, the no-cost2 Hamilton® CapTel® phone enables healthy, meaningful connections by making it possible to listen and read word-for-word captions of everything said to a user on the phone – similar to captions on television. Often a single connection is all it takes to alleviate the effects of loneliness.
