Hear for the Holidays!
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
The holiday season is here, and with it come the situations that are dreaded by those with untreated hearing loss as well as their significant others: group conversations, parties with lots of background noise, and large family gatherings. The Center for Audiology is helping patients get ready for the holidays by discussing the effects of untreated hearing loss and providing hearing loss treatment services.
Hearing loss is much more common than most people realize—affecting an estimated 48 million adults in the United States—and significantly impacts personal relationships. Here’s what a typical conversation might sound like if a spouse or parent has untreated hearing loss:
Normal hearing spouse: “Please dim the light”
Hearing-impaired spouse: “What about tonight?”
Normal hearing spouse: “The light, I SAID PLEASE DIM THE LIGHT!”
Hearing loss doesn’t just affect the person whose hearing is diminished. Every conversation and communication leads to frustration, annoyance, hostility and misunderstanding when there is untreated or under-treated hearing loss. Spouses stop watching TV in the same room due to the high volume, children roll their eyes and walk away when parents refuse to seek help, and co-workers or friends may have to routinely shout to be heard. Untreated hearing loss affects everyone who communicates with the individual with the hearing loss.
“To say that we are zealous about hearing healthcare and the benefit that comes from better hearing is an understatement,” states Dr. Sara Nagel, CEO of The Center for Audiology in Houston. “Every member of our practice is committed to bringing that ideal to the people of Houston - personalized hearing healthcare, highly skilled professional and support staff, state-of-the-art hearing solutions such as Lyric©, and an obsessive attention to detail. There is no better time than the holiday season for those who want to take charge of their hearing loss, and seek the best in hearing healthcare services and protection.”
