5 reasons you should get your hearing checked

It is recommended that everyone over the age of 50 have their hearing checked annually. Whether you feel you have hearing loss or not, a baseline test will be useful should you develop hearing loss at a later time.

1

Rule out serious medical issues. Hearing loss can be an early sign of cardiovascular problems, diabetes or dementia.

2

Reduce the risk of brain shrinkage and memory problems. Hearing loss is associated with accelerated brain atrophy, especially in the area of the brain used for short-term memory.6

3

Improve your quality of life. Undiagnosed or untreated hearing loss can lead to decreased social activity, interaction and depression. Treating hearing loss can truly transform your life.

4

Reduce stress and fatigue. Concentrating and straining to hear can be exhausting for someone with hearing loss. Your brain is working overtime to try and distinguish the words being said. And if your brain gets it wrong, stress and anxiety set in.7

5

To enhance the lives of your family and friends. Communication is a two-way street. Your hearing loss may affect your loved ones as much as it affects you.


Having your hearing tested will help someone in need get free hearing aids.
