If dh and I tried to talk she would loudly break in to the conversation and get mad if we were still talking. We just can't have her over again. Deafness and rudness seem to go hand in hand.
My turn will come I'm sure, but I hope to remember mom and what an unwelcome guest she became due to her refusal to admit her deafness.
My MIL has the same problem, she is now 83 and getting deafer slowly over the past 7 years. She bought a wireless headset for the television, it works like a charm. She can pump up the volume to blast level all she wants. All you would hear is some of it, but not in another room.
