If you have been experiencing hearing loss and need to get your hearing tested, we strongly recommend making an appointment with us at Pure Sound Hearing. It’s the perfect time to do so because May is Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM).
The main purpose of BHSM is to raise awareness of the pervasiveness of hearing loss. About 48 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss, but the average person waits 10 years before seeking help and treatment.
Here’s why some people put off getting their hearing checked:
No matter what their reason is for not getting immediate help, hearing loss harms their overall health. If you cannot hear, you can miss out on important conversations - including medical discussions with your healthcare provider. Hearing loss has also been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and general cognitive decline. These health issues can significantly impact your life.
Our specialists at Pure Sound Hearing can help you select the appropriate solutions for your hearing needs. No matter how long you’ve been experiencing hearing loss, we can help you on your journey to better hearing. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
