Understanding Hearing Loss and Effects

Hearing Loss In America Infographic

Understanding your hearing and what affects it is very important. As this informative graph shows, 20 percent of the U.S. population has some level of hearing loss. It is helpful to know what can cause hearing loss and that if it happens to you, a friend, or a loved one, it can usually be treated. Likewise, it is helpful to know that the sooner the treatment plan goes into action, the more — for the most part — the impact on one’s life can be mitigated. On the other hand, if someone waits very long to address hearing loss, negative effects known to be directly associated with hearing loss can occur.

This graphic is very helpful, as well, for knowing the impact of hearing loss on the average person as well as on a household. If you are dealing with this — or if someone you know is dealing with this — we strongly suggest seeking help as soon as possible. Addressing hearing loss not only allows you to hear the beautiful sounds of nature and what is all around you on a daily basis, but helps keep the brain active and alive!
