Better Hearing

The benefits of better hearing are proven

“Untreated hearing loss … is a serious and prevalent problem. From the mildest to the most severe hearing loss level … persons who do not wear hearing aids are more likely to experience depression, anxiety, paranoia and emotional turmoil, compared to people who wear hearing aids. Persons who do use hearing aids are more likely … to be involved socially in their neighborhoods, in organized social activities, and at senior centers. Most hearing aid users report significant benefits from the aids – in family relationships, mental health, and other areas that affect the quality of their lives. In all categories, family members observe even greater benefits from the use of hearing aids than do the users themselves.”
