If you have concerns about your hearing, we recommend you have a full hearing assessment. Hearing can be tested at any age from newborns to the elderly. At the age of 50, everyone should have a baseline hearing test with follow up tests every 5 years. Hearing is essential to communication. A quarter of all 65-year-olds have hearing loss. In the population over 75 years of age, incidence of hearing loss increases to 83%. We recommend all seniors have their hearing tested. It is much easier to adjust to hearing aids if the process is started earlier. But no one is too old to hear better!
