Hearing aids can greatly improve the quality of life for those with hearing loss as well as their family, friends, and associates. Once corrected, patients with hearing loss can more effectively engage in conversations both professionally and socially. This greatly reduces the stress a hearing loss causes.
Research has shown that an untreated hearing impairment can result in withdrawal from social activities and cognitive decline. Use of a hearing aid also reduces the stress that family and friends and co-workers experience.
