Benefits of Hearing Aids
Hearing loss that goes untreated can lead to social withdrawal and isolation affecting all areas of life. Those who wear hearing aids report:
Improved quality of life!
Quality of life relates to a wide range of interrelated factors including health, emotional and social. 71% of hearing aid users said that their overall quality of life had improved since wearing hearing aids.
Better family relationships!
Hearing loss poses a problem not just for the hearing impaired person, but for the family members. 74% of people who wear hearing aids report improved relations at home!
Improved self image!
67% of hearing loss patients using hearing aids related improved self esteem. The largest hindrance to wearing hearing aids is an accompanying stigma associating them with old age. With miniaturized circuitry and more and more baby-boomers receiving benefit from these small devices, many are recognizing that untreated hearing loss is more obvious than the modern, discreet hearing aid.
Communication IS life, indeed!
Quality of life is directly related to your ability to communicate and receive communication.
Hearing aids are not a cure, but certainly the most important rehabilitative tool that has been proven effective in combating many of the devastating symptoms directly associated with hearing loss.
