Better Hearing Month: Give Your Hearing Some Love

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, an annual event that raises awareness about communication and hearing disorders, and promotes screening and treatment.

Hearing loss is the third most common condition among older Americans, with 3 out of 10 people over 60 impacted by it. Additionally, 1 person in 41 to 59-year-old age group; 1 in 14 of those who are 29 to 40; and at least 1.4 million children also have hearing loss. All in all, an estimated 36 million people in the United States have hearing problems, but only 23 percent of those who could benefit from hearing aids, actually use them.

Yet, various studies have demonstrated that while untreated hearing impairment can cause feelings of isolation and depression, amplification not only improves the overall quality of life, but also safety and the earning power.
