HEARING LOSS & IT'S IMPACT


Hearing loss can have an effect everywhere, our hearing is a major sense. Did you know that 4 million people of working age have hearing loss? Did you know that the unemployment rate amongst people with hearing loss is almost 50%?

Why is this? Its one of the vital senses just like our eyes. Yes people with sight loss wear glasses and carry out their functions perfectly well without any thought. We don't think twice about having our eyes tested or wearing glasses. In fact glasses are a fashion accessory so what about hearing? Why that stigma?

Hearing plays such a major part in our wellbeing. If 50% of the hearing impaired population are unemployed then that's proof enough. Hearing is communication and is essential to our quality of life.

YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH & MENTAL HEALTH ARE AT STAKE - BUT THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE

Research is showing that Hearing loss has major links to Dementia as well as cognitive decline. When we don't hear we don't exercise key areas within our brain. Our warning signals that we take for granted deteriorate. Our sense of space and direction diminish. This causes us to withdraw from social activities which in turn put our physical and mental health at risk. It just doesn't have to be this way.

WELLBEING & HEARING LOSS


To be alive to live well we need to hear and see all the things that are important. We need to hear laughing, crying, music, conversations even the boring ones! TV, church, concerts, wives, husbands kids & grand kids. These sounds are the fuel of life and makes life so rich and special.

When our hearing starts to fade these sounds we took for granted start to lose their edge. This very slight and gradual change leads us to gently withdraw and it makes us withdraw from the things we love.

THE REAL IMPACT OF HEARING LOSS


Stigma is one of the main reasons that people don't do anything about their hearing. Why? Well old people wear hearing aids right? WRONG! Old people don't wear hearing aids old people are the ones going eh? What? Old people are the ones sitting in the corner not getting involved because they can't hear.

The fact is young people wear hearing aids. People who want to remain active both physically and mentally. Helping your hearing keeps the grey matter exercised and prolongs your brain health keeping you cognitively young, healthy and vibrant. It's a fact that active people with hearing loss have done something about their hearing that's why they can remain young and active.
