Can hearing aids affect relationships?
is a great question! How can hearing instruments affect your relationships?
Typically people will experience a positive change in their relationships once
they begin to wear hearing aids. When a
hearing loss goes for years without any intervention or without addressing the
issue, it can take its toll on a relationship.
Loved ones can often become frustrated with untreated hearing loss
because they have to repeat themselves numerous time, and even then their
communication partner still didn’t understand.
Hearing aids can help you maintain your speech understanding
capabilities and they can help you communicate with your partner more
effectively. The person trying to hear
is less tired from all the effort put towards understanding, less frustrated
being they don’t have to ask people to repeat as often and less apt to avoid
social situations out of fear of not understanding. The person communicating with the person with
hearing loss is less frustrated and less resentful of their partners because
they have taken a positive step toward trying to help themselves hear
better. If you are considering hearing
instruments and would like to make an appointment, call 440-205-8848.
