Hearing Loss Is A Common Condition

Approximately one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 has difficulty hearing. Hearing loss is a common problem caused by noise, aging, disease, and heredity.

People with hearing loss may find it hard to have conversations with friends and family.  They may also have trouble understanding a doctor’s advice, responding to warnings, and hearing doorbells and alarms.  Older people who can’t hear well may become depressed, or they may withdraw from others because they feel frustrated or embarrassed about not understanding what is being said.  Sometimes, older people are mistakenly thought to be confused, unresponsive, or uncooperative because they don’t hear well.

Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse. If you have a hearing problem, see a health professional for appropriate treatment.

So…who are the audiologists? Doctors of Audiology assist in the patient treatment of hearing disorders by combining a complete history with a variety of specialized auditory assessments.  Based upon the information, the audiologist presents a variety of treatment options to the patient. For hearing problems, treatment can include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and audiological rehabilitation.
