Tips for Maintaining Good Hearing for Seniors

Hearing loss is part of the natural ageing process, but if left untreated, it can put a strain on relationships, impact communication and capacity to remain socially active and live independently. Take early action by protecting your hearing and looking for signs of hearing loss.

Protect your Hearing

Loud noise can damage the sensitive structures within your inner ear. It’s important to know that loud noises don’t have to be physically painful to cause hearing damage. To protect your hearing make use of earplugs or earmuffs, set the volume on your radio and TV to moderate and give your ears frequent rest from noise.

Signs of Hearing Loss

Many people say they can hear but they can’t understand. If other people seem to be mumbling, you have difficulty following conversations (especially if the person isn’t looking directly at you) or you are in a noisy place, it is time to consider a hearing check.

Arrange a Hearing Check
