Hearing loss is generally a gradual process, and it’s no secret that it can have a huge impact on your emotional wellbeing, your ability to work and how well you connect with others, while also increasing the likelihood of developing dementia.
Hearing loss is categorised by different levels - normal hearing, mild hearing loss, moderate hearing loss and severe hearing loss. While hearing is unique to everyone, hearing aids are normally needed if you’re suffering from any form of hearing loss, even if you have a mild diagnosis.
If you’re struggling to understand speech, find yourself turning up the TV more and more, if background noise is making listening hard or you’ve noticed a significant change in your hearing, you might need a hearing aid. Contact a trained audiologist or Ear, Nose and Throat specialist if you’re struggling with your hearing.
