ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi, I am Dr Sonia S V. I am an ENT Surgeon & Head & Neck Specialist. Nowadays technology is there to help in such situations. You can take her to an ENT specialist in your locality , get her hearing evaluated and in case the loss is sensorinueral Hearing loss [ which is the cause in majority of such cases] a hearing aid can make her life much easier and allow her to enjoy life.
All the best
