What can YOU do? We encourage you to prompt your doctor to screen you for hearing loss, or simply asking about hearing loss would be helpful. It can be hard to admit you are experiencing hearing difficulty, or maybe you don’t even notice it, but it’s always a good idea to talk to you doctor about it. Your doctor may even appreciate hearing about your experiences and be eager to help!
Hearing is an essential part of communication. It involves the ability to detect and make sense of sound in our environment. A decline in hearing ability can lead to increased communication difficulty in all settings, especially background noise. Many people report being able to HEAR, but not UNDERSTAND. These symptoms mostly present themselves gradually; therefore people find themselves compensating for many years before actually getting tested. In certain instances, hearing loss can be sudden and should be diagnosed and treated immediately!
