If you’ve been living with hearing loss, you may not realize exactly how much you’ve been missing out on.
Birds singing and the wind blowing through the trees are just a small sampling of the benefits of hearing aids.
Here are five ways hearing aids can improve your quality of life:
- You’ll once again hear soothing sounds you may not have heard in years.
The music, the wind, wind chimes, bees buzzing, kids running and playing, rain on your roof – all sounds that you’ve been missing out on if you aren’t using a hearing aid.
- Your self-confidence will be restored.
When you are worried about hearing what your friends say, you are less likely to be confident in yourself and your interactions with others.
- You’ll be able to work and socialize longer.
Cognitive fatigue is a normal result of straining to hear. Straining to hear simply wears you out.
Hearing aids solve that problem.
- You’ll be safer.
Hearing aids make you more aware of sounds around you – from emergency vehicles to fire alarms – if you can’t hear them – you can’t get out of harm’s way.
- Your income could increase (seriously!)
According to a 1999 survey by the National Council on Aging (NCOA), the net income difference reported among 51- to 61-year-olds is a difference of nearly $40,000 per year. (Source: https://www.ncoa.org/wp-content/uploads/NCOA-Study-1999.pdf)
The bottom line is, hearing aids DO improve your quality of life.
But you can’t do anything about it, if you don’t go see a hearing care professional.
