Reasons to get help
There appears to be a connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline according to research conducted and published by a team of physicians at Johns Hopkins and the National Institute on Aging. According to the study, “older adults with hearing loss are more likely to develop problems thinking and remembering than older adults whose hearing is normal.”
Hearing loss can occur for a number of reasons. As people age, they may begin to lose their hearing as a result of the natural aging process. Your hearing health contributes to your overall well-being and quality of life. Begin your journey to better overall health today.
Like many other high-tech devices (TVs, phones, computers), hearing aids have experienced a major technological revolution in the past decade and especially in the last few years.
Recently we have introduced sensors and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology into our hearing aids. The result is the most natural sound quality ever. Our hearing aids are designed to go beyond helping you hear; they now help you live an active lifestyle. These hearing aids can track body and brain health; virtually eliminate feedback; make listening in noisy environments easier and more comfortable; stream stereo sound from TVs and radios directly to the hearing aid itself; let you talk on your phone hands-free; and much more. All in instruments that are smaller (in some cases, invisible) and more comfortable, rechargeable, and powerful than ever before.
While no hearing aid can restore your hearing to normal (except in cases of very mild hearing loss), our hearing aids are designed to let you hear soft sounds that you could not hear before and prevent loud sounds from becoming uncomfortably loud for you. They are also designed to improve your ability to understand speech, even in noisy environments.
Research on people with hearing loss and their significant others has shown that hearing aids play a significant factor in a person’s social, emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.
More specifically, treatment of hearing loss has been shown to improve:
- Communication in relationships
- Intimacy and warmth in family relationships
- Ease in communication
- Earning power
- Sense of control over your life
- Social participation
- Emotional stability
- Lower risk of falls
When you consider all the benefits of better hearing, you can see that hearing aids hold enormous potential to positively change your life.

While you are no doubt concerned about appearance, compensating for a hearing loss by asking people to repeat themselves, inappropriately responding to people (or not responding at all), or even withdrawing from social situations is more obvious than wearing a hearing aid.
Today’s hearing aids are small, discreet, and more stylish than ever before. Some are even invisible. And chances are that once you have a hearing aid, your quality of life will improve so much that cosmetics will not be as much of an issue for you.
