Did you know that 1 in 5 adult Canadians have hearing loss? The prevalence increases with age, with 47% of Canadians over the age of 60 experiencing hearing loss. Unfortunately, denial, fear and embarrassment prevent many Canadians from seeking the help they need. Hearing loss can be so gradual that others may notice a problem before you do. Untreated hearing loss can contribute to depression, social isolation and other health issues, but early detection and treatment can reduce some of these effects.

The impact of untreated hearing loss on quality of life is silent but serious; that’s why ListenUP! Canada, HearingLife Canada and National Affiliated Partners encourage every Canadian over the age of 60 to get a free baseline hearing test. Upon arrival at your hearing test appointment, your hearing professional will assess the health and function of both ears, and determine the degree of hearing loss you may have, as well as your treatment options.

Generally hearing loss, especially age-related hearing loss, cannot be cured, but it can be treated with hearing aids. The current generation of hearing aids represent amazing advancements in technology. They solve the most common challenge for hearing aid wearers: hearing well in noisy environments. With the biggest advancement in hearing aid technology in 30 years, these new hearing aids collect and digitally process natural, 360 degree sound thousands of times per second. These advanced hearing aids have been shown to reduce the strain that effortful-listening puts on the brain, and even improves recall from conversations that take place in noisy listening environments. In fact, these hearing aids improve speech understanding in background noise 30% more than the previous top-of-the-line model of hearing aids.

If you are tired of missing out on conversations with your friends and family, this could be the solution. Newer models of hearing aids are designed to be almost undetectable and come in a variety of styles with additional features to choose from. There are more options than ever before to help you improve your hearing. Ask your hearing professional what’s right for you.
