We live in a world surrounded by sounds. As one of our five senses, hearing is a wonderful gift which we should never take for granted. We think nothing of going to the dentist, doctor, optician regularly so why do we sometimes neglect getting our hearing checked.
Around 40% of people over 50 in the UK have some form of hearing loss. Hearing loss is usually gradual and you may not notice any changes straight away. Not only is hearing loss frustrating, it can even be dangerous if you are unable to hear warnings. There are many devices and options to help improve hearing.
Do we not value it as much or is there some kind of stigma attached to it? Detecting hearing loss at an early stage is best as solutions can be put in place so that one need never miss out on the conversation of life.
After all, isn’t life worth hearing?
