Hearing Health
Hearing is important for almost all activities of daily living. While hearing has a pivotal role in understanding speech and participating in communication, it also contributes significantly to the perception of emotion in speech sounds, music and other activities requiring monitoring the environment, localizing sound sources and safe mobility. As such, hearing-related abilities impact our ability to communicate with others as well as participate in many aspects of our lives including mental health and physical fitness.
Hearing Loss
Hearing loss has been linked to adverse health outcomes, including poor cognitive function, increasing risk for accidents, depression, impaired social interactions and communication skills, diminished quality of life, increased risk of falls and physical inactivity. It also has been linked to increased risk of anxiety disorders, substance abuse and suicide.
Healthy Hearing
Healthy hearing results in positive health outcomes, increases social engagement, improves communication, and lowers the risk of dementia & depression. It is apparent that quality of life decreases when the sense of hearing is impaired. However, it is also important to understand how much can be gained when healthy hearing is present.

Better Communication

Communication is the foundation of relationships. Good hearing health eliminates the frustration of missing out on conversations and being isolated from social situations.

Positive Benefits on Brain

Healthy hearing is also thought to have positive benefits on brain functioning, such as memory and other physical health benefits.

Independence and Security

Good hearing creates independence and security. When you can hear your phone ring, a fire alarm, a doorbell ring, or an emergency vehicle on the road behind you, you are able to be aware of your surroundings and stay safer when alone.

Job Security

Hearing well can save you significantly on the financial aspect in terms of professional performance and maintains job security and various other social stigmas.
