My hearing has changed. What should I do?
Our hearing gives us a great many gifts from listening to music and striking up a conversation with friends and family to tuning into the sounds of nature all around us.
As we grow older, our hearing is impacted over time. There are ways we can protect our hearing through everyday life, but there are also steps we can take to ensure that life continues with as little disruption as possible if we need more help.
Here at Lennox Hearing, our experienced team of hearing care specialists advise the following:
- Our hearing changes over the years. People of all ages can be affected by permanent hearing loss and experience frustration, isolation, loneliness or depression as a result.
- Very often it’s a family member or friend that begins to notice some hearing loss as its onset can be gradual and hard to recognise.
- If you regularly need to ask someone to repeat what they have said to you or you struggle to understand conversations when there is also additional background noise, consider making an appointment with a hearing care professional today.
- Book a free hearing test with Lennox Hearing if you have feelings of ear fullness or pressure, a constant ringing or buzzing in your ears, and dizziness.
- While advanced age is the most common cause of hearing loss, exposure to loud noise, drugs, wax in the ear canal, injury and certain types of illness can also have a significant effect.
- If you feel your hearing has changed, book a free test in one of our clinics or arrange a home visit as early diagnosis is crucial to possible treatment and maintaining quality of life.
- Advances in technology mean there is a range of discreet and effective hearing aid products to suit all ages and lifestyles available, and we can discuss all of your specific needs to create a tailored solution just for you.
