Hearing problems are the most common communication disability in older people. The wide-ranging impact of hearing impairment means that not only does the person with hearing impairment experience the consequences, but also his or her family members. This impact on family members is referred to as a “third-party disability” (World Health Organization, 2001). Health professionals and researchers worldwide suggest that professionals can increase effectiveness of health care if they take into account the needs of the person with hearing impairment and the needs of family members (Dunst, 2002). This article discusses the important role of family-centered care in audiologic rehabilitation for adults with hearing impairment. Strategies for increased inclusion of family members in the rehabilitation process are proposed, with concepts from the field of psychology applied to audiologic rehabilitation.
