Hearing loss can be difficult for someone to admit they are facing it. Whether it is through the inability to recognize it, or from just being stubborn enough to admit it's there, hearing loss can go untreated for a long time. Prevention and protection are key in helping to preserve your or your loved ones’ quality of life.
Do you find that you are repeating yourself to a loved one more often than you once did? Does he have trouble carrying on a conversation in crowds and noisy places, or started avoiding social situations all together? These are some of the first signs of hearing loss; and unfortunately, they likely will continue to get worse over time.
You've noticed for a while now that your mom, grandparent, uncle, or dear friend doesn't seem to be hearing quite as clearly as they once did. You've had a nagging sensation that something is wrong, but you've put it off, hoping it will go away. It hasn't gone away. In fact, it seems be getting worse.
