Welcome to The Audiology Center
Hearing Care by Hough specializes in hearing rehabilitation for mature adults.
The prevalence of hearing loss is astounding. Roughly 10% of the general population is affected by this disease with well over 30% of those over the age of 65, and over half in their eighties. It’s the third most prevalent chronic disease among the aging. So we call hearing loss the silent hurt.
