Hearing loss is frustrating for those who experience it and their loved ones. Imagine not being able to understand your spouse, best friend, or grandchild. The emotional toll can be devastating and can result in depression, stress, and anxiety for all parties.
We all know that sometimes our loved ones can be stubborn or resist change, but if there are noticeable signs of hearing loss it is important that we help get them the hearing evaluations and solutions they need.
We should be mindful of the sensitive nature of hearing loss. It is very personal and can be a cause of embarrassment for independent individuals who do not typically like to seek help.
