Words of the Wise: Hearing Aid Edition
What advice would you give someone who is on the fence about whether or not to get a hearing aid?
AB: I would tell them if they are not ready and willing to accept a hearing aid then the time is not right for them to buy hearing aids. If they can accept wearing a hearing aid, there is a trial period and they can return it if it is too overwhelming.
Have you seen hearing loss harm relationships?
AB: When one person feels they do not need a hearing aid, yet their partner feels they cannot communicate the relationship will suffer and over time they will stop communicating with each other because it is too difficult. Also, hearing loss can lead to social isolation and depression which can affect relationships.
