How do you know if you have hearing loss?
Hearing loss is a common problem which affects people of all ages, but primarily older adults. Nearly one third of those between the ages of 65 and 74 experience hearing loss, and that number increases to nearly 50% for those over the age of 75. Hearing loss can be caused by noises, disease, heredity and aging. You may also be experiencing ringing, buzzing or humming in the ears, which is called tinnitis. Tinnitis is a common problem which can be controlled so you can find relief from this annoying noise.
Those with hearing loss often have other related problems such as depression and frustration. And studies have shown that older adults with hearing loss are more likely to have dementia than those who have it treated.
If you are experiencing hearing loss, contact Sound Decision Hearing Aid Centers right away. Hearing loss is treated more successfully if it is treated promptly.
5 common signs of hearing loss:
1) You hear, but have trouble understanding.
2) Your family complains that you play the TV too loudly.
3) You have difficulty understand in small groups or a crowd.
4) People seem to mumble more frequently.
5) You have trouble hearing when your back is to the speaker.
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, please call Sound Decision Hearing Aid Centers. We will schedule a free comprehensive hearing evaluation to determine if hearing instruments would benefit your lifestyle. In some cases your loss maybe due to something as simple as a wax blockage in the ear canal, which would be revealed only after we have performed a video ear scan. Our audiologist will review the results of your test with you and determine the hearing aid that best suits your lifestyle and your budget. If you would like to try the hearing aids before you make a commitment, no problem. We are glad to provide you with a trial pair with no cost or obligation. We know that once you hear all that you’ve been missing, you’ll embrace your new hearing aids and get back into life again.
