Spring has sprung, as has Summer and now on to Fall. No matter what season we are in outdoor sounds are reverberating through the environment, but people with untreated hearing loss are not able to hear them.
Out of an estimated 36 million adult Americans who suffer from mild, moderate or severe hearing loss, millions do not use hearing aids, either because of the high hearing aid prices, or because they avoid them for cosmetic reasons.
Studies have shown, however, that people with untreated hearing loss are prone to feelings of sadness, isolation and depression, while use of hearing aids leads to improved quality of life through better communication, easier social interactions, and better job opportunities.
That is a message worth repeating not just during spring, but throughout all four seasons.
