  1. ~20%
  2. ~35%
  3. ~50%

  3. 23-28
  4. 29-35
5.  When the six different categories of the COSI were examined for “With TeleCare vs. No TeleCare, in general the results showed:
  1. No significant difference
  2. A significant difference for one or two categories
  3. A significant difference for most categories
  4. A significant difference for all categories
6.  The authors suspect the overall ratings from the burden scale were low for most items because:
  1. Because the scale was designed for caregivers dealing with much more severe issues than hearing loss and hearing aids
  2. Because the TeleCare was more effective than expected.

  3. Around a 5 on a 7-point scale
  4. Around a 6 on a 7-point scale
9.  Regarding burden, when the authors examined TeleCare for Phase 1 vs. TeleCare for Phase 2, they found that:
  1. Burden was less when TeleCare was applied in Phase 1 for all 11 items
  2. Burden was significantly less for two of the items when TeleCare was used in Phase 1.
  3. Burden never exceeded 2.0 (on 5-point scale) when TeleCare was used in Phase 1
  4. All of the above
10.  When TeleCare was used in Phase 1 vs Phase 2, there was a significant benefit for the caregivers regarding:
  1. The “helped with care” item only
