What is Hearing Loss?

What is Hearing Loss?

Our hearing is subject to a natural ageing process which can be accelerated by the environment you are subject to on a daily basis and potentially the work that you do. Most people experience some form of hearing loss and because this is generally a gradual process it is sometimes not noticeable on a day to day basis and only manifests itself when an everyday situation such as needing the television higher than is generally comfortable or trying to support a conversation in a noisy restaurant environment becomes difficult

Signs that you may have a hearing loss include;

  • Needing the television or radio volume significantly above the comfort level of your family or friends.
  • Regularly requiring others to repeat what they have said.
  • Communication challenges such as frustration over the clarity of conversation or other people’s speech especially where there is significant background noise.
  • Becoming tired after social occasions due to high levels of concentration.

This can significantly dilute quality of life potentially leading to social withdrawal, isolation and anxiousness when in most cases technology can be employed to determine and significantly mitigate the root cause of the hearing challenge.
