Elderly Challenge - Observation 4

I observed that many elderly people have difficulty hearing, thus it is very dangerous and risky when they go outdoors. One such example is that they cannot here cars on the road easily, increasing the possibility of an accident. They need others to be around them or hearing aids to alert them of dangers. This also makes communication troublesome and slow as the person speaking to the elderly may have to repeat what he said for the elderly to hear and understand what he is saying more clearly.
