Research shows that hearing aids return a sense of control over life events. Those who use hearing aids have greater physical, emotional and mental health, and higher self-esteem. They are physically and socially more active.
Emotional stability is improved and people report an improved perception of mental function. Hearing aids can help decrease feelings of discrimination, anger, frustration, depression, feelings of paranoia, anxiety and social phobias.
Another plus is increased earning power. Some studies show an increase in income of up to $24,000 a year for those who use hearing aids vs those with hearing loss who do not use them.
If you have a mild, moderate or severe hearing loss and are considering hearing aids, think about these benefits. Hearing aids hold great potential to positively change your life. Schedule a hearing evaluation and discuss the benefits you stand to gain with an audiologist.
