Hearing Correction: More Than Hearing Better!
It’s widely known that wearing hearing aids to correct hearing loss helps people hear and understand better. What’s less known is that hearing aids have many other benefits and positive outcomes on the health and quality of life of people with hearing loss.
For a healthy brain
When hearing aids are worn regularly to correct hearing loss, the brain gets its exercise by receiving stimulation from sound. Studies have shown that this type of brain stimulation slows cognitive decline, reducing the risk of developing dementia. Stimulation can also prevent atrophy of the auditory nerve, which causes sound distortion in the long term.
Correcting hearing loss with hearing aids as soon as possible helps prevent the irreversible consequences of sensory deprivation.
For a fulfilling social life
Wearing hearing aids to understand conversation is an effective way to prevent social isolation. People with hearing loss tend to avoid social events because they can cause mental fatigue, embarrassment and other negative impacts. When they can better distinguish sounds in the environment and understand conversations, people can enjoy getting involved socially again.
People who hear well feel more autonomous and independent.
Wearing hearing aids to correct hearing loss and leading an active social life are closely linked to a lower risk of developing depression.
For tinnitus relief
An annoying sound only heard by the sufferer, tinnitus is often associated with hearing loss. One of the ways to relieve this ringing in the ears is through sound enrichment provided by hearing aids. Hearing sounds in the surrounding environment helps focus attention on something else, and the amplification of sound helps “mask” the tinnitus.
Hearing aids help relieve the symptoms of tinnitus and reduce stress.
For a better quality of life
Compared to untreated hearing loss, improved hearing from wearing hearing aids has been scientifically shown to result in better overall health and quality of life. Hearing correction enables individuals to take part in social activities, lowers their stress and stimulates the brain.
