On the occasion of his exhibition at the Royal Academy David Hockney was interviewed on the BBC. He mentioned frankly how his deafness limits him from engaging socially.

I felt curiously comforted that this aspect of ageing was touched upon on national TV, by a famous person,  as a matter of fact and not in a specialised programme on old people.   Will viewers take more care when they are in a noisy environment with an old person  who looks abstracted as I and some friends do?
