Hearing loss affects every aspect of your life
Our five senses keep us connected with the world around us – they help us form relationships and generate perceptions of the world. So the prospect of losing one of these senses is a scary and often isolating experience.
If you are suffering from hearing loss, you may find that life has become a little less enjoyable. Your relationships with your loved ones could suffer, you may struggle to enjoy social situations, and going to the beach just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the waves crashing against the shore. Every aspect of your life is different with a hearing loss.
Hearing loss can affect your health and well being
If you have a hearing loss, your brain needs to focus more of its energy on the simple task of hearing. Everyday conversation becomes more tiring because your brain works harder to try to decipher what’s being said. This can make you and your brain exhausted and can affect your ability to remember details.
You may not even know that there is a problem
On average it takes 10 years for a person with hearing loss to address the issue.
