Hearing Affects More than Just You
Many people put off treating their hearing loss because they wrongly assume it’s only harming them. However, your hearing less can directly affect and impact those closest to you, and in turn that can cause:
Frustration: The need to constantly repeat themselves.
Misunderstanding: Your withdrawal from people and activities is interpreted as rudeness or disinterest in others.
Concern: They worry you’re unable to hear warning sounds like smoke detectors, alarms or sirens.
Confusion: If you answer incorrectly, don’t respond at all or relay the wrong information when conversing with them.
