Is It Time for Hearing Aids?
Hearing loss is a sudden or gradual decrease in how well you can hear. It is one of the most common conditions affecting older and elderly adults. Having trouble hearing can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor’s advice, to respond to warnings, and to hear doorbells and alarms. It can also make it hard to enjoy talking with friends and family. All of this can be frustrating, embarrassing, and even dangerous.
Do you have difficulty hearing in noisy places such as restaurants, social events and gatherings?
Do you have more trouble hearing women than men?
Do you frequently ask others to repeat themselves?
Do you avoid going out because you’ll struggle to hear?
Do you notice any ringing or buzzing sounds in either ear?
Do you feel that everyone mumbles and their speech is not clear?

How Are Today’s Hearing Aids Different?
A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes sounds clearer so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities.
There are three basic parts to a hearing aid: a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. The basics haven’t changed for decades. What has changed significantly is how a hearing aid manipulates the sound as it enters the hearing aid and eventually sends the signal into your ear canal. Theses advances include:
- Digital signal processing to constantly adjust to your environment
- Programmability to readjust aid to changes in hearing loss
- Automatic volume adjustments
- Automatic adaptation to background noise
- Bluetooth technology to connect wirelessly to phones, TV, and other devices
- Water resistant technology
- Hearing aids look better than ever before coming in a variety of shapes, colors and styles
