“What?”


“Huh?”


“Pardon me?”

“Would you mind repeating what you said? I couldn’t understand you.”
 

Hearing loss isn’t just an ear issue; it’s a quality of life and health issue.

 

Did you know that untreated hearing loss is much more noticable than actually wearing hearing aids? Reduced hearing acuity is frustrating for people with hearing loss as well as for those around them. In fact, a 2009 study showed that relationships are failing because of unmanaged hearing loss. The survey of 1,500 hearing-impaired people over 55 revealed that almost half (44 percent of people) said that relationships with their partner, friends or family have suffered because they can’t hear properly.

 

Book a hearing test or a consultation today to talk to one of our hearing aid practitioners about what is new in the world of hearing aid technology.

How did everyone enjoy the SUPER BOWL?

A great article in Forbes on the major advances in hearing aid technology! Definitely a good read for anyone who wears hearing aids or knows someone who does. "How the Super Bowl became a platform for 'hearables' "

The Effects of Living with Hearing Loss

Let’s face it, living with hearing loss can be frustrating,
even dangerous. Hearing aids can allow you to function
better in all areas of your life:

Your Family

Your grandson’s silly secrets. Your wife’s soft “I love yous.”
These are sounds you definitely don’t want to miss.

Your Work

If you are missing important information on phone calls or
in meetings, you may not be working at the level you want to be.

Your Safety

A car horn. An ambulance siren. The fire alarm.
Hearing loss can cause you to miss important signals
that alert you to danger.

Your Happiness

Do you feel uncomfortable at social gatherings?
Are you missing the rewarding sounds of nature or your favorite music?
Don’t let hearing loss affect your quality of life.

 

An important message from our friends at Audibel.
Contact us today for more information about hearing loss,
hearing testing and hearing aids.

Use it or loose it

You would not put off getting glasses if you were having trouble seeing. Hearing loss is not something you should just “put up with”. In fact research shows that early treatment can make a big difference!

Over time, reduced stimulation to your ears and brain can actually impair the brains ability to process sound and recognize speech. Hearing impairment is only partially recoverable with the use of hearing aids.

The sooner you start wearing amplification the better. When you can’t hear what is going on around you, your mental sharpness and your communication skills suffer. The earlier your start using hearing aids, the quicker you will notice benefits.
