You are right! Hearing is such an important aspect of health and well being. I don't know about clever, but I have found that those that are skeptical often benefit from a demonstration. Do you know the source of her refusal to take action? Is it denial, cosmetic, fear of failure, or economic? There are good solutions to each of these obstacles. If your father is interested in getting help for your mother, perhaps the two of you can find a local hearing provider that will provide a free demonstration in office. This way she can actually hear the difference with and without the hearing aid. Some providers offer 30 or 60 day money back guarantees, so there is no risk for her to at least try the hearing aid. There are numerouse studies that associate loss of hearing with short term memory loss, anxiety, depression, isolation, and even dementia - these are all very good reasons to do something sooner, rather than later!
