Your Journey To Better Hearing Starts Now
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my hearing has declined
A: Hearing without understanding... Hearing loss is not like listening to sounds with the volume turned down. Instead, you may notice that certain spoken sounds like sh, th and f - are more difficult to hear than others. That's why people with hearing loss often say they can hear people talking but can't understand what is being said. It is typical for individuals with a mild to moderate hearing loss to be unaware of their problem, even though family and friends are quite aware of it. Hearing loss is invisible and almost always painless. There are no physical warning signs, except in some cases there may be ringing in the ear(s), but the real reason hearing loss "sneaks" up on you is that the change is so gradual. Most hearing losses develop over a period of 25-30 years. By age 50 or 60, there can be enough deterioration to interfere with conversation.
What will happen if I wait too long?
A: The problem can grow... While most hearing losses do not cause physical pain, they can lead to social and psychological problems. These include: breakdown of communication, social isolation, employment difficulties, depression, frustration, loss of self-esteem and even a permanent decline of word recognition. Hearing loss can prevent the quality of life you've hoped for. It can restrict your ability to interact with others, prevent you from hearing important information, cause misunderstandings, heighten stress, cause unnecessary fatigue and filter out the subtle sounds of nature. Don't let poor hearing make you miss out on the many good and vital messages of life.
Is there financial help to buy hearing aids?
A: Yes, seniors qualify for AADL funding to help pay for their hearing aids. People who have lost their hearing due to noise exposure at work may be able to qualify for WCB funding for their hearing aids. Veterans Affairs, Social Services, Native Affairs and some insurance companies will also help fund hearing aids.
