Take control of your hearing health

Here are five reasons why regular monitoring of your hearing and early intervention are essential. 


1. Early detection and treatment of hearing loss may prevent any potential effect on the brain’s sound processing, leading to cognitive decline and permanent damage to your hearing health and wellbeing.

2. It helps you identify and treat other health problems which may have associated hearing symptoms such as dull hearing or tinnitus.

3. It's much easier to treat hearing problems when they first arise, and doing so means you can continue to enjoy the activities you love. 

4. You can monitor and be aware of gradual changes in your hearing levels that you may not notice (but others will). 

5. You can reduce the emotional impact of hearing loss including strain on relationships, frustration, embarrassment, loss of identity and loneliness.
