Why We’re Passionate About Healthy Hearing | Hearing Health Awareness Month
The Hearing at Home team feels immensely proud to serve communities right across Virginia – from Charlottesville to Lynchburg and beyond.
They understand that hearing loss doesn’t just produce one symptom, but it can also have lasting health and social consequences if left untreated.
That’s why specialists often spend over an hour during preliminary consultations with patients learning about their concerns and future hearing ambitions.
As it’s Hearing Health Awareness Month, these are some of the reasons why they work so hard to provide you with the right solutions.
Not just your hearing at risk
When you think of hearing loss, it’s normal to consider the obvious symptoms, such as not picking up on punchlines or missing critical information in conversations.
But actually, there is a range of health risks that can accompany a condition.
Research from John Hopkins University shows that you’re twice as likely to acquire dementia if you have an untreated hearing loss.
In addition, you could experience cognitive dysfunctions, as crucial sound information won’t be sent to your brain on a regular basis.
The good news is advanced hearing care can have a huge impact on these potential issues.
The team feels proud that they can help those in the community with treatment that will revolutionize their lives both now and in the future.
Often, an untreated hearing loss doesn’t just affect one person.
On average, someone with a concern waits ten years before seeking professional assistance.
During this period, relationships frequently become strained, as their denial and trouble communicating become points of friction.
When you put your trust in a Hearing at Home specialist, you’ll be soothing, not just a hearing problem but also a range of related social issues.
The team provides this service daily to families across the state. For them, it’s essential to address every concern and dilemma that a hearing loss can bring.
Prevention is key
It’s essential to help people with a hearing loss receive the right treatment. But the team also feels passionate about stopping hearing loss from emerging in the first place.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, they traveled across the state to speak to groups and communities.
Today, they’re taking a more one-to-one approach with their messaging, reaching out to individuals via AVA Care, or talking to them from a distance on doorsteps.
But with hearing loss numbers set to rise dramatically in the future, the team has never felt more passionate about raising awareness.
Now is a great time to find out how your lifestyle choices might be affecting your hearing health.
