Hearing aids get a bad reputation. When people think of hearing aids, they usually think old age… but that’s not the case! Hearing loss does not discriminate – whether you’re an infant or a senior citizen or anyone in between!
Hearing loss can seriously impact your quality of life. On average, only 1 in 5 people who would benefit from hearing aids actually get hearing aids. That’s crazy! With today’s technology, hearing aids are much more than just hearing aids – they’re basically computers on your ears! Not to mention, they are incredibly discreet nowadays. Hearing aids are capable of bringing people together! One of the results of hearing loss can be social isolation. With hearing aids, you can regain your confidence and go back to your regular lifestyle!
One of the best ways to end the stigma of hearing aids is to educate people – educate about hearing loss and educate people about advocating for themselves. Palm Harbor Audiologist, Dr. Rachel Conter takes the time to educate her patients about hearing loss and strategies they can implement in their daily lives. The more her patients know about hearing loss and hearing aids, the more comfortable they’ll be when they or someone they know get hearing aids!
