Hearing well is important for our health and well-being. It lets us socialise and stay connected with our friends and family.

It helps us to communicate with colleagues and customers. It helps us to feel connected. To enjoy each other’s company.

Why is maintaining your hearing so important?

Hearing well is integral to our well-being. It allows us to communicate with the people around us and connects us to our environment. Hearing loss can happen due to several factors, the most common of which is ageing and the other is exposure to loud noise.

An untreated hearing loss may be detrimental to our health. It can lead to a sense of isolation and reduced social contact. It can significantly affect the quality of our life. Research also indicates that there is an association between hearing loss and dementia.

When is it time to get your hearing tested?

Often hearing loss happens gradually over a number of years so we often don’t realise that we are not hearing as well.

Here are some key indicators for you, as a quick self-assessment:

  • You are concerned that you are not hearing as well as you used to.
  • You need to turn up the volume on your TV or radio while others in the room complain that it’s too loud.
  • Your family and friends are making comments about your hearing.
  • It sounds like people are mumbling.
  • You have to ask people to repeat what they said.
  • You are having difficulties hearing during meetings at work.
  • You are finding it difficult to hear in situations where more than one person speaks at a time.
