There’s no doubt that communication remains essential in our virtual world. From talking on the phone with loved ones, listening to your favorite music, watching the latest tv show, or attending your TeleHealth appointment over the computer, being able to hear your best is a top priority for us! Center for Hearing is committed to providing top-tier services to patients and providing you with the information you need to hear your best.
During this Better Hearing Month, we want to provide you with some practical ways you can help a loved one with hearing loss. Encouraging someone to seek help for hearing loss isn’t always easy, but it’s the right thing to do.
How you can help
1. Take note of when a loved one has trouble hearing
Have you noticed your loved one asking people to repeat themselves, turning up the volume past a comfortable sound level, or misunderstanding others? These potential indicators of hearing loss are important to notice and bring up.
2. Encourage them to visit a hearing professional
It might feel overwhelming or scary to make an appointment for a hearing test. Supporting your loved one in making this decision can help them feel more relaxed about the decision to move forward with receiving hearing-health care.
3. Educate yourself and others
Ultimately, the very best thing you can do to help is to stay informed and educated. Learning about hearing-loss warning signs, ways to protect hearing, and what technology is available will serve you well now and in the future. The best way to stay informed is by visiting a hearing professional.
Here at Center for Hearing, we are committed to helping patients from all walks of life hear their best. We perform diagnostic hearing evaluations, dispense the highest level of hearing instruments including the very latest in digital technology, and offer expert repairs on all makes and models of hearing aids and have the ability to custom-fit ear protection.
