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

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
