There are many reasons why it can be beneficial to have a close friend or family member accompany you to your appointments. It is helpful to have an extra set of ears for instructions or recommendations to ensure that everything is heard, and to help with remembering and understanding. Often the appointments, especially initial appointments, contain a lot of information that is hard to remember on your own.

 

In order to provide you with the best hearing health care possible, it is important for us to understand your everyday listening environments. A loved one can help to provide essential insights into difficult listening situations in your life.

 

We all know that communication is a two-way street. Bringing a significant other along with you can help them to understand your listening challenges and communication needs. Direct benefits to you – better understanding from the one who communicates with you the majority of the time!

Many of us know someone, family, friend, ourselves, who have hearing loss but are reluctant to do anything about it. It may be justified with “it’s not that bad”, ” I can get by”, “people mumble”, etc. Sometimes we don’t want to acknowledge the problem because we are embarrassed, see it as a weakness or a sign of aging or don’t want to wear that “big, bulky hearing aid”. So unfortunately, we wait years, even decades, before we do anything about it.
Many of us don’t realize how much untreated hearing loss affects every aspect of our daily life and our relationships at work, home and socially. We must also mention the negative impact it has on the brain.
Studies have linked untreated hearing loss to:

 

 irritability, agitation and anger
 fatigue, tension, stress and depression
 withdrawal from social situations
 social rejection and loneliness
 strained relationships
 reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety
 impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks
 reduced job performance and earning power
 diminished overall health
 cognitive decline
 risk of falls
If you think you or a loved one suffers from hearing loss, don’t wait to seek help. The sooner you treat your hearing loss, the better off you will be mentally and physically. Healthy Hearing is Healthy Living!
