Living with a hearing loss can be physically and mentally exhausting as you are having to constantly strain to hear and interpret what’s going on around you. With a treated hearing loss, your confidence will grow and you will feel less isolated in social situations.
Whether it’s the telephone, doorbell or announcements on the train, you are much less likely to miss auditory cues and information.
You no longer have to ask people to repeat themselves or to speak louder. The TV and radio volume will be turned down, providing more acceptable noise levels for yourself and more importantly for those around you.
Several studies have linked untreated hearing loss to an increased risk of developing dementia and reduced cognitive functioning. By treating hearing loss sooner, the cognitive decline associated with hearing loss may be slowed down.
You understand your family and friends better as you perceive not only words but also emphasis, nuances, soft sounds and volume.
Not only do you become aware of hazards more quickly, you also recognise where the danger is coming from more reliably
