Impact of Untreated Hearing Loss
Untreated hearing loss can be frustrating and isolating. According to a study by the National Council on Aging, people with untreated hearing loss were more likely to report depression and anxiety, and participate less in social activities than those who wear hearing aids.
Reasons for resisting help include:
- People just need to speak more clearly
- My hearing’s not bad enough
- My friend doesn’t like her hearing aid
- I don’t want people to notice
- I can’t afford it
- I'm too old OR I'm not old enough
Fortunately, there is a solution to each and every one of these objections. Todays hearing aids sound clearer, are smaller, more comfortable and affordable.
Digital Hearing Aids
Hearing aids will last approximately seven years and some people like to upgrade every five years due to improved technology. Hearing aids are not what they were 10 years ago. They are now much smaller and more fashionable. All hearing aids adjust automatically to different listening situations. For example, if you are in a restaurant, the hearing aids will automatically reduce background noise and focus on speech. Some are even equipped with Bluetooth, which allows them to connect to TV’s, cell phones, and iPods wirelessly.
General Guidelines of Hearing Aid Prices
Hearing aids are priced according to size, circuit technology, and options. Our audiologist will help you choose a hearing aid that is right for your hearing loss, budget, and lifestyle. Some insurance companies do cover a portion of the cost so it’s important to check with your insurance company before your visit.
