1. Improved Wellbeing
Living with hearing loss can be physically and mentally exhausting as you are having to constantly strain to hear and interpret what’s going on around you. With treated hearing loss, your confidence will grow and you will feel less isolated in social situations.
2. Missing Out
Whether it’s the telephone, doorbell or announcements on the train, you are much less likely to miss auditory cues and information.
3. Less Frustration
You no longer have to ask people to repeat themselves or to speak louder. The TV and radio volume will be turned down, providing more acceptable noise levels for yourself and more importantly for those around you.
4. Healthy Mind
Several studies have linked untreated hearing loss to an increased risk of developing dementia and reduced cognitive functioning. By treating hearing loss sooner, the cognitive decline associated with hearing loss may be slowed down
5. Stronger Relationships
You understand your family and friends better as you perceive not only words but also emphasis, nuances, soft sounds and volume.
6. Stay Safe
Not only do you become aware of hazards more quickly, you also recognise where the danger is coming from more reliably
7. Increased social engagement:
People with untreated hearing loss often experience social isolation and withdrawal due to communication difficulties. Hearing aids can help individuals stay connected and actively participate in social activities, which can contribute to better mental and emotional well-being.
8. Better cognitive function:
Studies have shown a link between untreated hearing loss and cognitive decline. Wearing hearing aids can help mitigate cognitive decline by keeping the brain engaged and active through improved auditory stimulation.
