Is It Time for a Hearing Test?
Hearing loss is a sudden or gradual decrease in how well you can hear. It is one of the most common conditions affecting older and elderly adults. Having trouble hearing can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor’s advice, to respond to warnings, and to hear doorbells and alarms. It can also make it hard to enjoy talking with friends and family. All of this can be frustrating, embarrassing, and even dangerous. Regular hearing testing is recommended to monitor whether you’re experiencing a hearing loss. A hearing test is the first step to improving your quality of life!
Do you have trouble hearing in a noisy room?
Do you have more trouble hearing women than men?
Do you ask others to repeat themselves?
Do you avoid going out because you’ll struggle to hear?
Do you notice any ringing or buzzing sounds in either ear?
How to Convince Someone They Need a Hearing Test
You are married to, live with or love someone who is clearly struggling to hear. How do you convince them that it’s time to get their hearing checked? The quickest way to bring someone around to the realization that they might be having a problem hearing is to stop being a human hearing aid. Frequent repetitions, tolerating the volume louder than you know it should be and repeating someone else’s conversation to them is a sign that you are becoming their hearing aids. The average person waits for 5 – 7 years to do something about their hearing loss. The sooner they do something about the problem, the happier everyone will be.
