Abstract
Introduction: Communication is the cohesive force in every human culture and a dominant influence in the personal life of everyone. Through the communication process, people exchange information, thoughts, ideas, and emotions. Communication is the key factor to facilitate interpersonal helping and the changes in direct‐practice activities and it can be seen as a tool to integrate people into society. However, barriers in communication can often occur due to factors relating to physical, cultural, experiential, emotional, linguistic, and gender differences. These barriers can have a negative effect on vulnerable groups such as older people. Physiological, psychological and emotional changes in the elderly often highlight the barriers to communication. This would put them at risk in terms of communicating their thoughts and needs to their families, friends, community and the people who provide services such as healthcare workers. Aged and community care workers need to have a thorough understanding of the aging process and how this affects communication. This will enable them to better understand their clients, develop essential skills for positive communication with older people and bridge the communication gap to better deliver services. Aged and community care workers can adopt these positive communication strategies to assist them in delivering effective and appropriate care services. Aim of presentation: This presentation will focus on the following: 1. Definition and process of communication 2. Definition of aging 3. Some behavioral signs of age‐related hearing loss in adults 4.
