Hearing Problems

by Gloria
(Riverside, CA USA)

My mother is 83 right now and will be 84 in 2012. She has a hearing problem in which the family tries to talk to her and she won't hear any of us unless we are right in front of her face. She can't hear any noises like water from the sink, opening and closing of doors, or 3 people's conversations in the same room she is in.


She has this serious problem and still believes she is able to drive. I disagree with this because of her age and hearing situation.

Does anyone have advice on how I can get her to understand how dangerous this is for her to drive?
