WHY IT’S IMPORTANT Although good hearing is something many of us take for granted, decreased hearing can greatly impact the quality of life of those affected, as well as their loved ones. Here are a couple of reasons why experts believe it is important to incorporate hearing health practices such as regular hearing check-ups at HearingLife into your own, or your loved ones, wellness routine. Improved physical safety This inability to hear properly can put people of all ages at risk for physical harm at home, or when out and about. Not being able to hear a fire alarm, a car horn or a doctor’s instructions could have dire consequences, as could not being able to effectively communicate medical symptoms to a professional. Better Social Connections Interaction with other people is one of the seven dimensions of wellness. Loved ones may begin to feel frustrated when attempting to communicate with a person who is experiencing hearing loss as they become tired of having to speak loudly or repeat themselves. Treating hearing loss can have a positive impact on a person’s relationships as well as their overall well-being. Are you or a loved one experiencing hearing loss?
