Hearing loss can lead to social, psychological and even physical problems if left untreated.
A hearing problem can affect your ability to communicate with others causing you to become isolated and frustrated.
People continue to hide their hearing loss with fear of the perceived stigma attached to hearing devices.
People would rather avoid social situations, ask people to repeat themselves or even misunderstand people.
It’s time to think about yourself and your long-term health.
According to a recent survey 55% of people aged 50 years and over are willing to put up with poor hearing due to hearing devices looking unattractive or making them look too old.
With new technology hearing devices are so small they are barely recognisable and allow you to experience life fully again.
