Common Signs of Hearing Loss...
DeafHear’s Hearing Aid Service

About DeafHear’s Hearing Aid ServiceHearing connects us to the people around us. Hearing is vital for communication, and it is important to address any hearing issues sooner rather than later, because research has shown that the earlier it is treated, the better the outcomes. Despite this fact, people wait an average of ten years before seeking treatment for their hearing loss, and less than half of the people who need hearing aids actually have them.

 

One reason for this is that most people who lose their hearing do so gradually over a period of time. In fact it is often the case that when our hearing starts to deteriorate others tend to notice before we do!
