Let’s be honest, not many people want to get hearing aids. It seems most people don’t use hearing aids because they have the misconception that they are big ugly things for the elderly. This common perception is a long way from reality.
In recent years hearing aids have been revolutionised. They have become smaller, more discreet, more effective and cheaper too as competition has increased. There are many devices that are invisible when worn and available from just a few hundred pounds. Not much for a tiny super computer which could transform your life.
Some of today’s hearing aids can even work as wireless headphones, connecting via Bluetooth to phones and televisions.
"I used to have to turn so that my better ear was pointing towards whoever was speaking. That’s all changed since I got hearing aids."
For expert professional advice it’s recommended that you see a hearing aid audiologist. They can help you find the right hearing aid. Anyone aged over 55 should have their hearing checked each year. Remember, modern hearing aids will not just help you communicate better, they can boost your confidence and eliminate those embarrassing situations when you have misheard something.
"If you’ve noticed a change in your hearing, don’t put off having a hearing test. Hearing care is an important part of your healthcare needs and you shouldn’t ignore it."
However, there are still a staggering 5 million people in the UK who could benefit from hearing aids who continue to torture themselves and embarrass themselves when mishearing things rather than seek a solution.
According to the charity RNID, one in five people in the UK suffer from some form of hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss can have a significant impact on quality of life. Feelings of depression and isolation are common and relationships can become strained too. Yet there’s no need to struggle when so many solutions are available to correct the problem.
