The realization that you could actually have a hearing loss is something none of us would be excited about. Sadly, our society has assigned a connotation that hearing loss means you are getting “old”. But really, hearing loss means you have been exposed to levels of sound throughout your life that has injured your hearing abilities. Hearing loss can happen in childhood, adolescence, adulthood and even in our senior years. Hearing loss knows no age, gender, ethnicity or occupation. And, with the right attitude and approach, hearing loss can be a condition that is controlled and manageable.
Fast forward from the 1950’s when hearing loss meant wearing a full-body hearing device, to 2018 when hearing aids offer Bluetooth capabilities, wireless technology, increased sound distinction features and so much more. Hearing loss is no longer something that holds us back!
