Untreated hearing loss

Untreated hearing loss has been known to have a significant impact on the quality of one’s life.  A multitude of emotions surround those with hearing loss.  To name a few:  sadness, anger, frustration, embarrassment, feelings of inadequacy, isolation, loneliness and loss of concentration.  Often these feelings can lead to exhaustion, withdrawal and depression.

Treatment of hearing loss, with the fitting with hearing aids, has been shown to improve:

  • Earning power
  • Communication in relationships
  • Intimacy and warmth in family relationships
  • Ease of communication
  • Emotional stability
  • Physical health
  • Group social participation

Additionally, treatment for hearing loss also reduces anger and frustration in relationships, feelings of anxiety and paranoia, depression and self-criticism.  Research by the National
Council on Aging has demonstrated that hearing aids clearly are associated with impressive improvements in the social, emotional, psychological and physical well-being of those with hearing loss.  Being fit with hearing instruments has the potential to positively change your life. Hearing the wonderful sounds of life: the laugh of a grandchild, bird song, the crackle of the fire, crunch of the snow under foot, conversation with your family and the television set.  Start the year off right, call to schedule a complete Hearing Test to determine if hearing instruments will be helpful to you.

Life sounds great!  Enjoy every moment!
