Hearing Loss

Hearing Loss

For many of us hearing loss is a natural part of the aging process. Hearing loss can also be caused by various other factors like illness, injury, ear infections and exposure to noise.

Hearing loss is a common problem

There are over 10 million people in this country with some form of hearing difficulty. (That’s 1 in 6 of the population)

70% of over 70 year old’s and 40% of over 50’s have some form of hearing loss. Despite being a common issue sadly it is also one of the most ignored. It can take up to 10 years for someone to address their hearing concern.

Hearing plays an important role in our everyday lives. Its our way of joining in with family and friends and communicating with colleagues. We rely on our hearing to lose ourselves in music, catch up with the news or relax with our favourite movie or soap.

While in most cases hearing loss may not cause physical pain, it can have social and psychological implications. There is a breakdown in communication, frustration and confusion can lead to social isolation and loss of self-esteem. This is why it is important to recognize signs of hearing loss early.

Hearing loss

 

If you suspect you or a friend is experiencing difficulties with their hearing consider the list below:

  • Do you ask others to repeat themselves?
  • Do friends complain that the TV is too loud?
  • Does it become difficult to follow a conversation in background noise?
  • Does it seem to you as if people are mumbling?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you may have a hearing loss.  When was the last time you had a hearing test?  Why wait years and suffer in silence with an issue that can be readily addressed with hearing instruments?

If you are feeling hesitant about taking the next step remember that you are not alone. Consider the improvements in quality of life experienced by individuals who take action and address their hearing loss.

The experience can be life changing- hearing aid users say they grow in confidence, communicating in groups becomes easier and less stressful and they begin to enjoy life again.

Our hearing allows us to connect with our surroundings and communicate with our loved ones. The ability to hear properly can go along way in helping to stay active. Correct communication with family and friends can mean the difference between a fun and enjoyable day out or a confusing and frustrating day.  Do not suffer in silence book now and start your journey to better hearing.
