Hearing Loss can lead to a roller coaster of emotions, but having the right professionals by your side can make the transition into using hearing aids and assistive devices much more comfortable.
FACT: Hearing loss is the third most common physical condition issue after arthritis and heart disease.
Hearing Loss Affects More Than Just You: Many people put off treating their hearing loss because there is strong belief that it only affects them. However, hearing loss can take a toll on everyone around you, especially your loved ones. Frustration, confusion, misunderstanding, and concern are just a few of the emotions that can put a strain on a relationship and/or family.
FACT: On average, people wait seven years between first noticing their hearing loss and finally taking action.
The Different Degrees of Hearing Loss:
-Mild: Difficulty hearing occurs with low volume speech and listening with background noise; it is manageable in quiet surroundings.
-Moderate: Short distance and face-to-face conversations are audible, but increasing distance will make it harder to hear. T.V. or radio volume may have to be turned up in order to be heard clearly.
-Severe: Normal conversation is only heard if speaker is talking loudly and at close range with very little or no background noise.
-Profound: Being the most extreme degree of hearing loss, with profound hearing loss you may not hear speech at all, even loud speech. Visual cues (sign language and/or speechreading) is heavily relied upon.
FACT: About 26 million Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 have high frequency hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises at work or in leisure activities.
