Intervene early in hearing loss to minimise the possible impact
The importance of hearing cannot be underestimated and the impact of hearing decline can disrupt your life significantly. It can become difficult to connect and communicate with those around you, resulting in feelings of isolation and declining self-confidence. Recent studies have shown that even in the early stages of hearing loss there can be a cognitive decline as the brain reorganises to compensate for the loss of hearing.
It is critical that you intervene early in hearing loss to minimise the possible impact. In Australia, over half the 60+ population have a hearing loss. This increases to more than 70% of those over 70. So for older people a yearly hearing test will help identify any hearing loss in its earliest stages. If a loss is detected then early treatment will provide the best possible outcomes.
