When is a hearing aid the right solution for someone with a hearing loss?
Research by the National Council on the Aging on more than 2,000 people with hearing loss has demonstrated that hearing aids clearly are associated with dramatic improvements in the social, emotional, psychological, and physical well-being of people in all hearing loss categories from mild to severe. Specifically, hearing aid usage is was shown to improve the following for people with measured hearing loss:
- Earning power
- Communication in relationships
- Intimacy and warmth in family relationships
- Ease in communication
- Emotional stability
- Sense of control over life events
- Perception of mental functioning
- Physical health
For most people suffering from hearing loss, you’ve seen your hearing decline very gradually over a period of years. And you probably just got used to it as one side effect of getting older and wiser.
