Why Your Brain Needs Hearing Aids
On average, people tend to wait five to seven years between first experiencing hearing loss symptoms and actually getting help for it. But research shows there are many good reasons to seek hearing loss treatment sooner rather than later.
Early intervention prevents your brain from forgetting what to do
Over time, reduced stimulation to the ears and brain can actually impair the brain’s ability to process sound and recognise speech. Once speech recognition deteriorates, it may only partially recoverable with hearing aids in place.
Early intervention slows cognitive decline and communication problems
When you can’t hear what is going on around you, it contributes to reduced mental sharpness and the ability to communicate.
Early intervention improves the use of hearing aids themselves
The sooner people begin to use hearing aids, the more comfortable they are with them, and the easier it is to learn to use them to their greatest advantage. For many, its is more obvious having a hearing loss than to wear hearing aids.
