The Bottom Line on Hearing Aids

It can be difficult to take the first step to getting help for hearing difficulties, but the benefits after treatment far outweigh any barriers.

Hearing Loss Education

The effects of hearing loss are subtle, yet devastating over time.

Usually the development of hearing loss follows a slow progression, going unnoticed in the early stages, and as a result, it becomes easily accepted.

As communication becomes more difficult and awkward, the individual may retreat. Relationships with even close friends may begin to be affected.

The longer hearing loss is neglected, the more difficult it is to cope.

Hearing Help

Get help early. The sooner you get help for hearing loss, the less there is to relearn and the easier it is to adjust to wearing your new hearing instruments.

Signs of Hearing Loss (Hearing Self-Assessment)

  • Do people seem to mumble?
  • Do you ask others to repeat what they have said?
  • Do you turn up the volume on the TV too loud?
  • Do you ever misunderstand what has been said?

Bring the people you love back into your life

Is your hearing loss a handicap for your family and friends?

We can fail to recognize how our hearing problems impose upon our entire family’s quality of life. Most people get tired of the effort it takes to be someone else’s ears. They expect loved ones to manage their lives in a responsible way. This includes seeking treatment for problems as needs arise. So when we neglect what they feel is an essential need, and it persists over a period of years, it often leads to friction and unhappiness.
