Is Hearing Loss Affecting Your Life?

According to the National Council on Aging, untreated hearing loss leads to a lower quality of life. This often is expressed as depression, anger, anxiety, loss of self esteem, and paranoia.

Sadly, this may cause some to avoid social activity at a time when they may have fewer obligations, and more opportunities to explore their passions, hobbies and become more engaged with friends and family. Whether it's working on social causes, volunteering at church or participating in group activities or continuing education, this social interaction is deeply important to our overall health and well-being.
