Many Americans have hearing loss. For adults alone the hearing loss ranges from between 37.5 million up to 44 million, which means one in six Americans has hearing loss. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Diseases, 28.8 million adults in the United States could benefit from using hearing aids.
A large amount of adults leave their hearing loss untreated, even though there is an increased risk of depression, falls, dementia, and hospitalization associated with hearing loss. If people would just get hearing aids, those risks would diminish for wearers. Also, better relationships, improved earning power, increased social participation, better overall quality of life, and increased self-confidence result from getting hearing aids.
