Hearing what is being said and what is going on is more important now than ever before. If you are one of the roughly 48 million Americans suffering from some degree of hearing loss, Beltone understands you may be struggling more during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But remember, you are not alone. We believe dealing with hearing loss is a team effort, so we want to help you during this stressful and challenging time. If you suspect or have been diagnosed with hearing loss, the good news is that Beltone is here to support you on your journey to better hearing.
Hearing aids can make a big difference, especially when you find the right instruments and have the right help to adjust them as needed. While hearing aids cannot cure hearing loss, they can prevent hearing loss from getting worse and improve the quality of your hearing.
Even better, science shows hearing aids significantly improve the quality of life of hearing-impaired people. According to the Better Hearing Institute, eight out of 10 hearing aid wearers say they’re satisfied with the changes that have occurred in their lives specifically due to their hearing aids. Hearing aid wearers have reported:
- Increased sense of control and independence
- Improved mood, reducing negative emotional consequences of hearing loss such as depression and anxiety
- Stronger relationships with loved ones, reducing social isolation
- Increased earning power, allowing you to be more productive in the workplace
Better hearing is better living, which is why allowing hearing loss to go untreated can have a negative impact on your quality of life. The impact goes well beyond missing a few words in conversations and having to ask people to repeat what they say. An inability to hear words clearly can negatively affect your family, social and work lives, as well as harm your overall health.
