Please respond to the discussion post in one paragraph.
If you see a person who appears to be blind (white cane; service dog), what should you do to be of assistance to this person? If you knew you were going to lose your hearing what preparations would you make?
As a server, I see many different people that come into the restaurant and their behavior. I once had a gentleman who was in his early 50's randomly standing the middle of the isles. At first it looked as if he was waiting on someone but then i noticed he was starring in one direction. I didn't realize he was holding a stick. Many different servers, including myself asked if he needed anything and he kept denying help. we all did what we could to help him but he was a very independent man.
Losing a sense there is not really a way to prepare for it. You can learn to use sign language, read lips, communicating without hearing someone else. But i think many stages occur when you lose one of the most important senses. Depression can be a factor.
I agree with the post. When one loses one of their senses, all the other senses work really well. For example, if one is blind their hearing sense will be very sharp. I could see that he is at his 50s, so, he should be distressed as well as he was struggling with this disability. At times, they will be very reluctant that they could act without the help of anyone as they feel inferior when someone helps them. They try to overcompensate and act independently but as on lookers, we need to be attentive, at least until they move safely from our eyesight.
