Williams sound pocket talker and personal listener.

It measures about 4" X 6" and is quite light. It is designed so the person with a hearing difficulty wears the earbuds/headphones and the speaker uses the thumb-sized microphone.

We use it the opposite way. I am the one with the earbuds and the microphone is clipped into the top pocket of my husband's shirt. It works like a charm and have made our visits SO much less stressful. I am not saying "What?" all the time and is not saying "Never mind" all the time, knowing that he can make himself heard and understood.

There is a website but I suggest you just seek out Williams Sound Pocket Talker. They cost around $150 but I don't know if that is US or Canadian dollars.

Good luck.

My husband also has LBD and one of the greatest challenges has been getting heard (him) and me hearing him.

As well as music therapy the physical iotherapist loaned ya a device in the hope that it would cut down on the levels of our joint frustration.

It is called "Williams sound pocket talker and personal

Has he seen a speech therapist? My husband with LBD was able to learn to project his voice via several speech therapy sessions. He didn't remember to do that all the time, but when I reminded him he could make himself heard.

I suppose it depends on where your husband is cognitively, but if you haven't tried speech therapy, I suggest it.
