Wearing hearing aids for the first time can be an experience that changes your life. All of a sudden, everything sounds clear and you can understand what is going on around you. Hearing aids make it possible to reconnect with your family and friends, rescuing you from the challenges of poor hearing. Regaining your hearing will grant you a great sense of connection with loved ones.
Better Mental Health
Life is more challenging once your hearing starts to diminish. In addition to interfering with your daily tasks and communication with the world around you, if left untreated those who struggle with hearing may experience challenges to their mental health. Researchers have found that depression occurs more often in people with hearing loss. By making it possible for you to connect with others, regaining your hearing can gradually improve your overall mental health.
Reduced Fall Risk
Research has proven that hearing loss does contribute to greater fall risk. Hearing aids improve auditory abilities, freeing up brain function to focusing on motor functions like balancing and walking. Motor functions require a large amount of brainpower. As we grow older, it becomes increasingly important to maintain focus in order to prevent falls and injuries.
