Ask your audiologist… The value and benefits of hearing aids

Print Article

When I have patients that need hearing aids but reject the idea of getting them I remind them of the value and benefits of hearing aids and assistive devices:

• Improve your relationships (hear your spouse, family and friends better) they want you to hear them

• Reduce stress

• Improve your self-concept

• Make you feel better about yourself and the world

• Give you confidence

• Improve your social life

• Improve your mental function and environmental vigilance

• Reduce hearing related paranoia and depression

• Overall “Quality of Life” will be greatly improved

Remember — Silence is not Golden, it is Lonely!

Don’t forget that there are many assistive listening devices to help with other hearing difficulties. Some devices can help you hear the TV, phone, doorbells etc. if you still have difficulty even though you have properly fit hearing aids. These devices are wonderful tools to help you get the most out of your life.
