Many people struggle with Hearing Loss worldwide
While many people are aware that their hearing has deteriorated, they are reluctant to seek help. And, unfortunately, too many wait years, even decades, to address the effects of hearing loss before getting treatment.
Hearing loss is not just an ailment of old age. It can strike at any time and any age, even childhood. For the young, even a mild or moderate case of hearing loss could bring difficulty learning, developing speech and building the important interpersonal skills necessary to foster self-esteem and succeed in school and life.
When you struggle with Hearing loss, you may find that it takes a lot of extra effort and energy to have conversations with others. Hearing may be especially difficult in settings where there are many people talking or there is a lot of background noise. The increased effort it takes to be with other people may cause stress and fatigue. You may begin to avoid social activities, feel less independent, and worry about your safety.
