At Blue Ribbon Hearing & Tinnitus Center we believe that the world would be a better place if everyone with hearing loss could hear and communicate effectively. By treating hearing loss, knowledge and wisdom can be passed from generation to generation. Greater communication and understanding leads to better solutions for a variety of society’s problems. Many expensive health-related problems that can be physically and mentally devastating can be diminished or prevented by treating hearing loss. Better understanding of the challenges faced by individuals with hearing loss and their loved ones can help reduce many stresses that can arise from diminished communication.
You can show your family and community members with hearing loss your love by being patient. Changes to the auditory system and brain due to untreated hearing loss can make understanding more difficult in all situations. A few simple techniques can help when communicating with someone with hearing loss. Speaking slowly and more clearly can improve understanding. Rephrasing your question or response is generally more effective than repeating more loudly. Asking the hearer to repeat what they think was said can help clarify and reduce misunderstandings.
Individuals with hearing loss often resist getting help for numerous reasons. Choosing to get help shows loved ones what they have to say is important. Hearing more clearly reduces listening fatigue and can improve relationships. Social activities such as dates at restaurants and parties can be much more enjoyable with technology designed to focus on speech and block out noise.
We love to help people more effectively hear and communicate. Millions of people in the United States needlessly suffer with anxiety, depression, frustration, isolation, loneliness and stress due to untreated hearing loss. Treating hearing loss has become easier than ever before with amazing technological advancements and devices designed for nearly every type of hearing loss.
