Spring HearingMay is Better Hearing and Speech Month, which makes it the perfect time to schedule a hearing evaluation at Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions if you have experienced any degree of hearing loss.

Roughly 36 million people in the U.S. experience hearing loss and almost half of the U.S population over the age of 75 has some degree of hearing loss. While hearing loss is a common health condition, only 20 percent of people visit a hearing specialist when they know there is a problem.

While hearing loss may seem like an inconvenience, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. People with hearing loss miss out on special moments with friends and loved ones. The constant struggle to hear can even leave a person feeling depressed, frustrated and anxious.

Research conducted at Johns Hopkins University has also shown a link between hearing loss and the development of dementia. The research revealed that when people with severe hearing loss did not seek treatment, they were five times more likely to develop dementia than those with normal hearing.

If you have been experiencing hearing loss, let May be the month to have your hearing checked. The staff at Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions is happy to help you improve your hearing health. We can also help you find the right hearing aids that will improve your hearing health the most.
