The sooner you take action on hearing loss, the sooner you begin to regain sharpness, confidence and control. Beginning as soon as possible is also vital to put a stop to the many negative effects that can result from hearing loss, such as:
When you can’t hear what’s going on around you, your mental sharpness suffers. This is because the reduction in aural stimulation over time can impair the brain’s ability to process sound and recognise speech. The brain doesn’t get the practice that it needs.
Research consistently demonstrates the considerable effects that hearing loss has on social, psychological and cognitive performance. It can lead to cognitive decline and dementia.
Because conversations take so much more mental energy when you struggle to hear, an untreated hearing loss often causes people to withdraw from socialising. This can lead to isolation and depression if you leave it untreated.
Do you or a loved one experience these effects?
It is important to seek help if you notice signs of hearing loss in yourself or in a loved one.
If you couldn’t see well, you would go to the optician. If you had a tooth problem, you would go to the dentist. But for many reasons such as misplaced pride or embarrassment, many people avoid going to a hearing care expert. At Hidden Hearing we are ready to help you.
