Your hearing is important

Every day has a multitude of sounds, yet you’re struggling to hear them. People are mumbling or whispering. Music has lost its tones. Your TV or radio is at top volume. Conversations in restaurants, noisy places or on the phone are difficult, so you avoid social situations or taking calls. You stay silent because you feel embarrassed asking people to repeat themselves – or guessing what they are saying. You feel lonely. And tired trying to hear. Sound familiar?

You are not alone

When it comes to dealing with hearing impairment, you are not alone. One out of three people over age 65 has some form of hearing loss.

It is not only older people who experience hearing difficulties. Young people can also be hearing impaired due to any number of factors, including childhood illnesses or too much exposure to loud noise or music. The truth is, people of all ages may be experiencing untreated hearing loss. With many different treatments options available, there is little reason to avoid taking action .

Can you prevent hearing loss?

It’s impossible to block out all the noise of our busy world. Whether it’s construction, car traffic or loud music at a concert, modern life has a way of making a racket.

But you can control some of your noise exposure. For example, it’s a good idea to take earplugs along to concerts and movies that feature a loud soundtrack. It’s a great idea to wear earplugs while using noisy household machines such as leaf blowers. People who work in noisy environments should ask their employers to provide hearing protection.
