What is the impact of untreated hearing loss.

When is it time for hearing aids? Our hearing plays a large part in our general well being and before you put off trying hearing aids, let’s consider a few things.

Ignoring even mild hearing loss can negatively impact many areas of your health. Research shows higher risk of falls, hospitalization, memory issues such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, social isolation, and depression with untreated hearing loss.

Hearing loss causes strife in relationships. It may not require much effort for you to say “What”, but for those around you repeating conversations over and over throughout the day can be exhausting. Sometimes when you turn the volume up on the TV to hear it better, others may experience discomfort from the loudness.

Some people worry that hearing aids will make them “look old.” Hearing loss is far more noticeable than hearing aids! People will notice you saying “What” or answering inappropriately more than they will notice your hearing aids. Today’s hearing aids are designed to be discreet. Being in touch with family and active socially help keep you young!

Hearing impacts your ears, your brain, and your whole body.
Everyone should have a hearing baseline done.
