I've had several seniors who lost their hearing during old age. Like others have mentioned, a blinking light at night works well for letting the dog know you want him to come in the house. Hand signals work for normal commands. I've been lucky so far since I've had two "nanny dogs" who would bring/herd the hearing/sight impaired Hooligans to me when I asked them.
