I got a phone call from a hearing clinic that they had just fitted my mother with hearing aids and to pay $3600. I was shocked since I am her legal guardian, and the assisted living facility knows that only I can make decisions about her well being, and they know not to drive her to medical appointments without my approval. I told the hearing clinic no. I know my mother's hearing is poor but I also know it will be impossible for her to keep track of the aids. The nursing supervisor at the assisted living facility says I can arrange for a nurse to put them in in the morning and take them out at night, but I still don't think it will work, as my mother loses everything (she has lost at least 6 canes in the past year.) I don't think she will be able to change the batteries, or even recognize when the battery has died. I doubt she can hold on to the hearing aids more than a week or two. For what it's worth, my sister agrees with my decision but I am feeling very conflicted. Any advice?
