1. Reconnecting with Family and Friends
Many people with hearing loss will begin to withdraw from social gathers. People will begin to find themselves making excuses for going to gatherings because they cannot participate in conversations or miss hearing something and feel insignificant.
Patients who seek treatment via hearing aids will not miss those special moments (e.g. grandchildren speaking, birds chirping, etc.)
Hearing aids allow people to hear emergency sirens, smoke alarms, security alarms, etc., if they were not audible before. People will also be able to hear if a person is coming up from behind them if they are on a walk.
3. Prevention of Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Johns Hopkins research shows older adults with hearing loss have greater brain shrinkage and loss of cognitive abilities. The earlier the intervention will halt the brain shrinkage.
4. Improved Confidence
Hearing aids will help improve a person’s confidence by allowing them to walk into a situation and not worry about missing important conversations, meetings, gatherings, etc.
5. Reduced Stress
People will find themselves having an elevated stress level when they are not able to hear as well. Higher levels of stress can lead to increased blood pressure, weight gain, trouble sleeping, etc. This may also lead to more anxiety.
6. Improved Work Performance
People with hearing loss will find they are able to perform their job better and more efficiently when they are able to hear and communicate more easily.
7. Balance Issues
Patients with hearing loss may also have trouble with balance. One possible explanation is individuals who can’t hear as well may have trouble knowing their environments.
8. Increased Activity
Being able to hear better will allow people to become more involved in more activities such as volunteer organizations, book club, church groups, and volunteering. Not to mention, general everyday life and conversations with family and friends.
