We’re delighted to shine a light on the issue of hearing health in honor of Better Hearing & Speech Month, an annual celebration founded by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
It’s estimated that 48 million Americans have a significant hearing loss, yet most fail to seek treatment. That should concern all of us because untreated hearing loss puts adults at greater risk of social isolation, depression, falls and cognitive issues.
The good news is that when you address your hearing loss, you have so much to gain—not only your hearing, but your health, cognitive well-being, physical safety and quality of life.
