Now is the time to get your hearing checked
Posted on Jan 17, 2016
Did you make a New Year's resolution this year? Maybe it was to see your family more, or take better care of your health, but for a number of Australians, 2016 could be the year when they get their hearing sorted.
Even though there is a range of sophisticated hearing devices available to help treat hearing loss, not everyone will take advantage of this incredible innovation. Only 25 per cent of those who could benefit from a hearing aid currently use such a device, says the Hearing Care Industry Association1 – a figure we can only hope will improve in the years to come.
As noted by the Scripps Research Institute, hearing loss, when left untreated can often become worse2, highlighting the importance of seeking treatment as soon as possible. However, there is another incredibly good reason to book a hearing appointment in the next few months.
