We are celebrating Better Hearing and Speech Month at Audiology and Hearing Aid Center! Did you know that hearing loss is an increasing health concern in this nation that is often treatable? While it is a common expectation that as we age, we may lose some hearing, few realize that hearing loss is prevalent among adults of all ages – with half of the 36 million people in the United States with hearing loss under the age of 65. When hearing loss occurs during our adult years, but long before old age, many tend to ignore it.
According to the Better Hearing Institute (BHI), getting a hearing test and treating hearing loss can open up a whole new way of looking at life. New research from BHI shows that people with hearing loss who use hearing aids are more likely to be optimistic, tackle problems actively, have a strong social network, and feel engaged in life.
6 Compelling Reasons to Upgrade Your Thinking on Hearing Aids
Hearing aid technology and design have undergone a sweeping transformation over the past several years, taking off in terms of what they can offer youthful-minded people eager to stay active and engaged.
The new reality is that hearing loss is part of modern life for a great number of people. Itâ™s commonplace. But new technologies are making it easier to manage hearing loss.
Below are six compelling reasons to upgrade your thinking on hearing aids and to schedule an appointment today for a comprehensive hearing test offered complimentary at our office.
- Addressing hearing health may help protect cognitive function.
- State-of-the-art features make todayâ™s hearing aids better than ever.
- Using hearing aids may help unleash earning potential.
- Many hearing aids can help mask ringing in the ears.
- More than 9 out of 10 of the newest hearing aid owners are happy.
- Today’s hearing aid users are giving the thumbs up to others.
The vast majority of current hearing aid users say they’d recommend a hearing aid to others with hearing loss. In fact, as many as 90 percent of people who purchased their hearing aid within the last four years say theyâ™d recommend a hearing aid to a friend or family member, according to recent BHI research.
