Hearing loss is the greatest disability in Australia, with approximately 60% of people aged 60 and over having a significant hearing loss. How do you know if you have a hearing loss? Most hearing loss happens gradually so you may not notice it until it becomes a big problem. The people around you will notice it first. You may have to ask people to repeat themselves, especially if there is any background noise.

You may miss parts of the conversation and need to turn up the TV louder than before. You may fail to hear the doorbell, telephone or other warning signals. Birds chirping may become fainter and fainter and music may not sound as rich and clear anymore. As the hearing loss worsens, you may find yourself straining to hear conversations and becoming tired from the effort required to listen. Over time, you may find yourself avoiding social situations and losing interest in activities that you once enjoyed.

The effects of hearing loss are not limited to the hearing impaired person alone. Hearing loss also has a significant impact on family, friends and co-workers. Difficult communication, misunderstandings and the frequent need to repeat what is said can be frustrating for everyone involved.

The situation can be greatly improved for most people with hearing loss (through hearing aids and/or medical treatment). AudioLogic Hearing Services provide fully digital hearing devices from a wide range of brands which are available in different styles, sizes, colours and offer the latest digital technology and features such as wireless communication or Bluetooth®. Call 9754 4162 to make an appointment with the Audiologist and discuss your situation further.
