Hard of hearing individuals miss out of conversations, especially in the digital realm when many people without hearing issues still have a hard time communicating.
This is true now for families as well as business in our current climate… Think ZOOM MEETINGS and FACETIME — we can help pair you stay virtually connected and hearing and communicating to your best abilities. Social distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation. Stay connected with Facetime, Skype, or Whatsapp—you can stream direct to your hearing aids from your smartphone or use an easy accessory! We can show you all of this and make it easy for you!
If you know of anyone who needs a hearing screening or help hearing, this is a great time to call us to discuss helping them or yourself. Loss of Hearing can seem scary, but it is very common and is luckily something we can help with, unlike the rest of life’s uncertainties.
When the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) designated May as Better Hearing and Speech Month back in 1927, their goal was to raise awareness about speech and hearing challenges and — more importantly — encourage people to take action and treat their own hearing and speech problems. We are here to help with that mission.
That mission is just as important today as it was 92 years ago. Maybe more so. Because today we know more about hearing loss — and how important hearing is to our quality of life — than ever before. For instance, we know that untreated hearing loss is linked to cognitive decline and dementia. We know that hearing loss is linked to increased risk of falls and social isolation. And we know it can cause higher medical costs, mental fatigue and more.
But most importantly, we know that people who treat their hearing loss are more likely to be optimistic, engaged, socially active, and happy that they did something about this easily treatable issue.
Use this as an excuse to start your better hearing journey today.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
