I didn’t hear you say that.
Cornelius, NC (PRWEB) June 22, 2006
According to Randy Wohlers BC HIS, President of MyHearPod.com, the first online hearing aid solutions company for baby boomers, “Unfortunately, many boomers refuse to wear hearing aids because they feel hopeless and use their hearing loss to reinforce their pessimism. Some are antisocial, and do not want to be held accountable for their behavior.”
Although studies show that hearing instruments dramatically improve the emotional, social, psychological, and physical well-being of people with mild to severe hearing loss, 78% of those who suffer from hearing loss do not seek correction. Until now, hearing health care specialists have attributed this lethargy to denial, underestimation of the consequences, costs of hearing correction, fear of getting old, and vanity.
However, after 30 years in hearing health practice, Wohlers believes, “Many hearing impaired boomers feel depressed and hopeless. They do not want to get in the game, because they are tired of being defeated. They believe that nothing they do will make a difference, and use their hearing loss to avoid further disappointment.”
Wohlers also believes that “Some boomers hide behind hearing impairment to mask their antisocial issues. Living with untreated hearing loss discourages communication with people, and provides a means to isolate them from others. By using their hearing problem as an excuse, they can refrain from answering the phone and tending to people who knock on their door. What’s more, they can avoid intimate conversations.”
Passive aggressive boomers often turn up the volume on their television set to levels that are annoying or even unbearable for others. They frustrate them with statements like “I didn’t hear you say that.” They concur with others, and then retract their agreements with their "poor hearing" excuse.”
Wohlers concludes “It’s a vicious cycle. I want to cry out to these people and tell them that a digital hearing aid can put them back in the driver’s seat and help them live life to the fullest.”
