Tell Us: Where Do You Find the Hearing Aid Batteries?

hand-287292_640My parents have been working out cleaning out their house, moving furniture and possessions in two waves to their apartment.

After each move, I've cleaned and straightened up the house, which remains on the market. Every time, I do I find hearing aid batteries in the oddest spots. The tiny, shiny buttons were behind a were once china cabinet and book case stood.

When my mom had her lengthy hospital stay in the summer of 2015, we found hearing aid batteries in corners of her rooms (she had several), unused tissues, everywhere. And, we were helping her change her batteries.

I'm always amazed where we find the hearing aid batteries, so tiny for older adults with arthritic hands to handle.

As a musician and audio engineer, my husband had a keen sense of hearing. As he became progressively more ill, he frequently slept with ear plugs. Well, I'd find those little orange plugs all over the house in the strangest of places -- under a bedside table or a pillow, thrown in the socks and underwear drawer, would find them in the washing machine, they turned up in the change pile on the dresser. Found some in a tool box. Oh, here they are in the kitchen junk drawer! In the car?! Buried at the bottom of a laptop bag. Remember that Star Trek episode entitled The Trouble With Tribbles? It felt like these little orange plugs were proliferating out of control and threatening to overtake the house!
