During Hearing Health Awareness Month, we’ve been engaging with the community about why it’s crucial to talk to us if you have a concern.
The reason for this is simple: many people wait years before booking their first hearing appointment, and during this time, their problems worsen.
Everyone at Holland Hearing has been so thankful to those who’ve spoken to loved ones about a possible hearing loss over the past few weeks.
Together, we’re making sure that people throughout Abilene get the right assistance as soon as possible.
These are some of the reasons why we’re passionate about the work we do daily.
It’s a vital connection
Hearing loss is a disability that you can’t see. But people with untreated conditions often struggle with their symptoms every day.
These including the obvious things, like misunderstanding conversations and having to ask others to repeat themselves.
But they also include less well known side-effects, such as losing the ability to connect with loved ones and suffering emotional distress.
It’s always an amazing moment when our specialists give someone back the gift of hearing.
People who have withdrawn from society suddenly return to their former selves and are ready to take on new, exciting challenges.
The numbers are growing
We tend to imagine that hearing loss only affects those who’ve experienced a lifetime of incredible sounds. But increasingly, it’s younger people who are most at risk.
Frequently, our specialists are helping those in their thirties and forties – and even in their teens – get the right treatment.
The reason for this is that modern life isn’t kind to our ears, and though many aren’t aware, simple, everyday lifestyle choices can do significant harm to them.
This includes going out to music events and concerts without protection, which recent studies have shown often results in early-stage hearing losses.
The Holland Hearing team is passionate about spreading awareness as much as possible and ensuring nothing stops those with worries seeking assistance.
Hearing loss can be halted
You can easily lower the risks of a hearing loss if you take the right precautions. And that’s why the Holland Hearing team are so passionate about hearing loss prevention strategies.
In Abilene, we speak to many hunters who aren’t aware of the amazing technology that’s available, which will both enhance their experiences and stop a hearing loss.
These custom devices not only amplify higher frequencies, so you can hear an animal’s footsteps, they also cut out excessively loud sounds when you pull your trigger.
In addition, the team can provide music filters to concert-goers, which allows them to appreciate high-quality sounds while protecting their ears.
