Hearing loss affects more than just the person who experiences it. Spouses, relatives and friends will all deal with the consequences of a loved one’s hearing problems. The result may be:
Tense or difficult relationships
Lack of communication
Limited or disrupted social activities
If you suspect your loved one is losing their ability to hear, it’s important to encourage them to have their hearing tested ASAP.
Often times, those suffering from hearing loss will wait years before consulting a qualified hearing professional. Your loved one may say things like:
1. Some hearing loss isn’t a big problem. Actually, hearing loss has been linked to increased stress, depression, lack of personal safety and other issues.
2. My doctor would have informed me if I was losing my hearing. Unfortunately, very few general physicians screen for hearing loss.
3. Hearing aids are embarrassing. Modern hearing aids have come a long way. Many are stylish or nearly invisible.
For these reasons, it’s important to encourage your loved to get their hearing tested at Scott Wilson Hearing Aids. Call any of our five locations in New Jersey to schedule your free consultation and hearing test!
