Hearing loss is a slow and gradual process that may develop over a period of 25 to 30 years. The rate of hearing loss is different from person to person as there are individual factors involved like general health, exposure to noise and underlying genetics.
By the time you reach the age of 55 to 60, there can be enough deterioration to interfere with general conversation. That problem can have a knock-on effect on your social life and your general happiness. Hearing aids can help you regain most of your hearing to allow you to reclaim your self-confidence and social life.
It is typical for people with a mild to moderate hearing loss to be unaware of their problem, even though family and friends are quite aware of it.

|Have you been told that the TV is too loud?||yes||no|
|Have family and friends commented on your inability to hear?||yes||no|
As a hearing care professional, I am trained in the identification of hearing loss. I am also knowledgeable in the selection, fitting, and proper use of hearing aids. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (in much the same way as your family doctor is) to allow me to dispense hearing aids. I can help you learn if you have a hearing loss, and if so, what that hearing loss is. You'll also find out what can be done to improve your hearing, and if hearing aids can help and the type and style best suited to your own unique hearing loss.

This is best for you, as the latest hearing aids are always the most advanced and deliver the best listening experience.
