In the early days I 'taught' my husband to use the iPad. It took 2 months for him to learn how to turn it on, a further 6 weeks to learn how to log on. Now all he does is check his emails and his Experian report, every day. Sometimes, he accidentally types his email address incorrectly and gets really angry and he changes his password every day. Even though we wrote it down he doesn't recognise it. Every day I have to find him something to do otherwise he has no idea. He's lost his sense of humour and I even had to draw a diagram on how to catch the bus! Fortunately I used to teach SEN children so am used to breaking things down into step by step parts but even then he doesn't always understand. He has Tinnitus and his autonomic neuropathy makes it worse so I can fully appreciate how being hard of hearing can impact on cognition. We are in a calm phase at the moment so conversation isn't too bad but I have no idea how long this will last. It's frustrating for both parties.
