Why should you consider a hearing aid?

As you have seen, hearing loss can have a potentially devastating effect on life

However, most people wait for years before seeking help to correct hearing loss

Having a hearing test and getting a hearing aid fitted offers multiple benefits

  • Better hearing
  • Improved quality of life (e.g. social activity, feeling connected with people)
  • A higher level of general health
  • More satisfying communications at work, with friends and family, and in other circumstances (shopping, answering the phone, etc.)

Problems caused by hearing loss

Hearing loss means more than simply not hearing well – people with hearing loss have reported a range of problems that have a negative effect on their lives or on the lives of people around them.

Hearing loss can also cause changes to the body’s immune system, increasing the risk of illness – working people with hearing loss tend to have more sick leave than those with normal hearing.
