My Mom seems to have days where she is more hard of hearing and she's much more 'foggy' on those days. One time she did have wax in her ears, but usually they are clean, and she did confess to me that she knew her hearing was getting worse. I googled it, and it does look like there may be a link between the two, but who knows?
How good is she with electronic things? I bought my mom a voice amplifier from Amazon. It came with earbuds, but I also bought some cheap headphones as well. She didn't want a hearing aid, and she has a tremor so that one would be hard for her to use. Plus the amplifier's a bit bigger so I felt like she might see it and remember to use it more.
She puts it on the living room table and then can turn up the volume on the amplifier rather than the TV. When she's having her hard-of-hearing days I make her use it. At first she resisted, but it really helped her hear, and I explained to her that our conversations were much more pleasant for me when I didn't have to yell.
She has an iPad that can take a headphone jack as well, so a lot of times she plugs her headset into that and she uses the ipad to watch videos or listen to a music service like Pandora. Does your radio have an outlet for a jack?
If your TV or radio could support wireless you could get her a wireless headset as well, but might have to help her set it up--however, the quiet might be worth it
