Hearing loss is the 3rd most common health problem in the United States. The growing list of consequences related to untreated hearing loss includes: hospitalization, fatigue, falls, anxiety, social isolation, depression, cognitive decline and dementia.
So what are your options to hear the best you can?
- Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAP’s)
- Hearing Aids
While it can be challenging to see the differences in the actual devices themselves, your ears will hear the difference! PSAP’s do not address the core hearing loss issues. They are also not professionally programmed or fit. PSAP’s are basically designed to amplify all sounds.
Hearing aids are a Class 1 medical device. They are programmed and fit after a professional evaluation and consultation based on your personal and unique hearing needs. Hearing aids are designed to help you hear and understand the best you can.
Better hearing health care helps people reconnect with family and friends in a variety of settings, and many studies have proven that better hearing health care reduces the social isolation, depression and anxiety that hearing loss can cause.
Why turn up the volume on the problem when you can get a personalized solution?
