The best solutions for your hearing problem
Don't live in silence, when a hearing aid can restore the sounds you're missing.
Getting older comes with several new challenges. Sight isn't as clear as it used to be. Joints don't move as effortlessly, or as painlessly, as they once did. And hearing everything from conversations to concerts can become more difficult. By age 65, one in three of us will have more trouble hearing the sounds around us. By age 75, that percentage will jump to nearly half.
While we'll wear glasses to read the newspaper and take NSAIDs to ease our joint pain, many of us are reluctant to wear the hearing aids that can tune us in to the sounds we're missing. Only 25% of people who need hearing aids actually own them, which means the other 75% could be working too hard to hear, and missing out on much of the world around them as a result.
