Three steps for getting active with Hearing Health in the New Year

  Posted February 1, 2019

Step 1 – Make an appointment

This is the most important step. While you won’t not be surprised to learn that your chances of developing hearing loss increase as you age, it’s alarming to learn that only 20% of people who could benefit from treatment actually seek help.

Step 2 – Address your hearing loss

Maybe you’ve noticed that you haven’t been hearing as well recently or a family member has urged you to get your hearing checked. Whatever the reason, chances are it’s time to see a hearing healthcare professional anyway. The good news? Most hearing tests take less than an hour to complete. If you aren’t diagnosed with hearing loss, at least you’ll have a baseline of your hearing health for the next time you have an evaluation. If you are diagnosed with hearing loss, discuss your options with the hearing healthcare professional.

Step 3 – Protect the hearing you have left

Turn down the volume. Keeping the volume low on televisions, radios and personal electronic devices is a simple way to protect your hearing. Limiting the amount of time you listen to devices through headphones and earbuds is another good way.

Each step above takes a relatively short amount of time; however, each is critically important in your efforts to get “hearing fit” this year.
