If you have hearing loss and like to eat out....

If you are at a restaurant or bar, sit in a place where you cannot see a television monitor because the visual distraction will decrease your abilities to speechread (i.e., read lips) and to pay attention to conversation that is occurring at your table. 
If you have a “better ear”, that is, one which has more hearing than the other, select seating or positioning that will allow you to have your dining partner on your better side.
At a restaurant, choose a padded booth because the padding will provide a buffer to other noise in the restaurant. Sit with your back to the rest of the room, especially if your hearing aids have directional microphones so that your hearing aids will not amplify noise that is coming from behind.
