Treating Hearing Loss Improves Your Quality of Life
Most people wait an average of 7 years before seeking help for hearing loss. Hearing loss affects our relationships, our cognitive abilities, and our general well-being. Untreated hearing loss leads to miscommunication and frustration. So why do we wait so long? Common myths and misconceptions can prevent people from taking that first step and seeing a professional. You may believe that you are too young for hearing devices, that they are unattractive, that they whistle all the time, or that they are too expensive. Thanks to advances in hearing technology, hearing devices now offer high quality personalized sound in discreet packages. There are treatment options for every budget.
Under the guidance and skill of an audiologist, your hearing aids will be fit and verified to ensure those devices are working properly for you. Hearing devices used in conjunction with active listening strategies and sometimes assistive listening devices (for the telephone or TV, for example) can make life less stressful for people with hearing loss. By treating your hearing loss, you gain improved communication with loved ones, increased social participation, and added confidence at work. Hearing aids can help you to maintain your independence and improve your overall quality of life.

Proud Partner of HearStrong
HearStrong was founded in 2013 with the goal of inspiring a mass hearing healthcare awareness movement. An estimated 48 million Americans experience hearing loss, and 80% of these individuals let it go unaddressed. This could be due to barriers such as social stigmas, financial difficulties, lack of awareness and resources, and more. In response to this need, HearStrong began recognizing and sharing the stories of remarkable people with hearing loss in an effort to empower and inspire others to take control of their hearing health. The HearStrong Foundation recognizes outstanding adults and children with hearing loss and gives them a platform to empower and serve others in need of hearing care. Learn more today!
