Hearing aids
Sometimes when people have a very serious learning disability or illness (such as dementia) it is not possible to communicate with them. In such situations care services will employ an ADVOCATE. A volunteer might try to get to know someone who has dementia or a learning disability, the volunteer then tries to understand then communicate the persons needs and wants.
Mentors are usually people who are highly experienced in a particular job or activity. They advise others who are new to the activity or less experienced.

Hearing aids are battery powered electronic devices with small microphones to pick up and increase thee sound received by a person
Text phones, relay systems and minicoms
Text phones and minicoms have a small screen and a keyboard to enable messages to be typed. The reply can then be seen on the screen.

The RNID operates a text relay service, whereby an operator can enable a conversations between speech phones used by hearing people and text phones used by people who may be deaf or hard of hearing.
Loop systems
Loop systems enable people who use hearing aids to hear sounds more clearly. A cable surrounds given area such as a public ,a room or even a car. Sound from a TV, microphone or music system can then be amplified into the loop.
