HOW HEALTHY HEARING CONTRIBUTES TO QUALITY OF LIFE
One of the reasons we got into this field was because we understood the impact hearing has on people's lives. We wanted to give people a better quality of life by helping them hear better.
Hearing loss has been linked to feelings of depression, anxiety, social isolation and fatigue. According to the National Institutes of Health, "Only 20% of people who could benefit from a hearing aid seek intervention. Even among hearing aid users, most have lived with hearing loss for more than 10 years before seeking a hearing aid."
We're trying to change this. What many people don't realize is how one small step - making that first appointment with a professional audiologist - can drastically change their lives for the better.
If you or someone you know has even had a fleeting thought about hearing loss, please join us for a complimentary luncheon on Wednesday, July 27, from 11 am - 1 pm at Restoration in Old Trail. Our guest speaker, Audiologist Deborah Doyle Allen, will give a brief presentation titled, "Auditory Fitness: How Healthy Hearing Contributes to Quality of Life." Dr. Allen will discuss facts about hearing loss, how we hear, how hearing loss can lead to cognitive deficit issues, how hearing aids can help, and how hearing aids work.
We will also be there to talk with you one-on-one and answer any questions you may have related to your hearing, or the hearing of a loved one.
