OVERVIEW OF HEARING LOSS IN TODAY'S SOCIETY
Over thirty four million Americans in our society are hearing impaired, yet only four out of ten people with hearing loss seek help for improving their ability to communicate.
In past generations, hearing loss was considered an affliction that befell only the very elderly, and it was thought that very little could be done to help it. Things have dramatically changed in recent times. According to the MarkeTrak VIII survey, 60% of hearing impaired people today are below retirement age, indicating that it can happen to anyone at any age. At the same time, technological advances in the industry have made hearing aids tremendously more effective, and almost stylish!
In most cases, the sense of hearing diminishes little by little and one hardly notices it. Because it is such a gradual process, over time one can forget all the familiar sounds that used to be taken for granted, and slowly begin to withdraw from the world of sounds and social communication.
Those who act when they first begin to notice a decrease in hearing ability are the ones who will profit the most from the wide variety of hearing instruments available in today's market.
Please don't be one of the millions who choose not to get help. Call Audio Advantage Aids and begin to participate once more in the world of sounds!
