Hearing solutions for elders

Noise, aging, disease and heredity are the common causes which result in Hearing loss. It is tough for people who cope with hearing loss and actively talk with their friends and family. They may also have trouble figuring out the doctor’s advice during the routine check-up, responding to horns on the road, and hearing alarms and doorbells.

Aging is a common cause for most patients who experience hearing loss. The elderly who cross 65 are the major class of people who suffer hearing loss. Causes may differ like hereditary, heart problems and any other nerve damage in the ear. Most elder patients don’t admit that they are facing this issue. Ignoring hearing loss without treatment can worsen the condition.

Your specialist may prescribe you to get a hearing aid. Hearing aids are electronic, battery-run devices that make sounds amplify in the receivers of your devices. Your hearing aid specialist will guide you on how to use your hearing aid.

Few rely on assisting-listening devices, mobile apps, and alerting devices to help them at their convenience. Some people who suffer from severe hearing problem use implants that help them to hear better, alerts and vibration systems can alert with doorbells and smoke detectors to send you visual signals or vibrations.

Age-related hearing loss is seen in people getting older. It seems to run in as a hereditary problem in families and may come because of the changes in the inner ear and auditory nerve damage. This condition makes it hard for the patient to tolerate loud sounds or to hear what others are saying.

Age-related hearing loss usually occurs in both ears, affecting them simultaneously. The loss is gradual, so someone with this condition may not realize that they have lost some of their ability to hear.

Consult HNR speech and hearing for the hearing tests and advise to pick your hearing aid.
