May is Healthy Hearing Month

Tips to keep your hearing healthy!

-Protect your hearing with proper hearing protection. Remember your hearing aids in the “off” position do not serve as hearing protection when in loud noise.

-Wear your hearing aids everyday. This decreases strain and the energy required to hear without your hearing aids and is beneficial for your physical and mental health

-Eat a well balanced diet and exercise regularly. This is good for your cardiovascular health but also for your hearing health.

-Do puzzles like crosswords, Sudoku or word searches. They are fun and get the juices flowing and keep the brain active

-If you have a hearing loss and wear hearing aids, get your hearing tested annually. This allows us to monitor your hearing, check and clean your hearing aids thoroughly and make any necessary adjustments.

-Get fitted with hearing aids if you have a hearing loss. Research has proven the sooner you start wearing amplification the better. Also, hearing aids can help reduce the rate of deterioration associated with dementia.

-Refer a friend or family member. If you are concerned about someone’s hearing, encourage them to get a hearing test. We know getting them into our office can be difficult so share this link to our website www.londonaudiology.com where they can take a free online hearing test.
