If you think that a family member or friend might be experiencing hearing loss then you can be assured you are doing the right thing looking for help. It can be difficult and upsetting when someone you love is experiencing symptoms of hearing loss. Having a conversation about getting help is not easy either. Denial and reluctance to discuss hearing is common. If hearing loss is experienced over time, people learn to accommodate their difficulties and acceptance can be a challenge.
You are not alone in your concerns. 1 in 6 people in the UK suffer from some degree of hearing loss. On average it takes people 10 years to address their hearing loss and seek help. Untreated hearing loss can have negative effects including paranoia, insecurity and depression and social isolation as they struggle to communicate with others. The Hearing Clinic will help you to find out how you can encourage and support your loved one to get the right diagnosis, treatment and most importantly aftercare.
Our extensive range of hearing aids will ensure that they experience all the benefits of clearer hearing. These include:
- Improved relationships
- Greater independence
- Improved mental health
- Increased learning capabilities for children
We are independent of manufacturers, so if it is required, we will find the right device to suit their level of hearing loss and individual needs.
Hearing loss can deteriorate over time so it is important to get help as soon as possible. Our FREE HEARING HEALTH CHECK is the best way to get a quick start to diagnostic tests to determine if hearing loss is present. It takes just 20 minutes and can be conducted at either one of our clinics in Radlett and Hitchin. If they have any concerns about this appointment you are very welcome to accompany them.
