If your New Year’s resolution focuses on your health, relationships, making the most of life or getting a handle on your budget, don’t forget to include your ears in your plans.
“Hearing is central to so many aspects of our lives. It connects us to our community, builds confidence and enriches our lives,” says Jillian Price, Director of Audiology & Client Experience and Chief Audiologist at HearingLife Canada.
Hearing loss can be extremely isolating — if it’s challenging to communicate with loved ones or even clerks at the grocery store, you can start to feel disconnected from the world around you. Not only is that incredibly frustrating, but it can put serious strain on your mental wellbeing.
“We surveyed 24,000 people around the world about their ears, and found that hearing aid wearers are three times more likely to be happy than those without. One in four reported having better relationships, and 40 percent said they now have better conversations,” Price says.
With financing options available and a variety of hearing aids styles to choose from, loving your ears can fit your budget, too.
This year, resolve to love your ears!
- Protect your ears: When operating noisy equipment or attending a concert, wear ear protection to stop noise induced hearing loss before it starts.
- Test your hearing: Book a free hearing test to understand how your ears hear now, and to better track hearing loss. If you’re over 60, schedule hearing tests annually.
- Try hearing aids: If hearing loss is affecting your life and relationships, book a free hearing aid trial with no obligations. Hear the difference good hearing aids can make!
- Adjust your hearing aids: If you already wear hearing aids, regular check-ups are still important. You may benefit from a hearing aid adjustment, or there could be more advanced hearing aid technology that provides clearer communication.
