One in 10 Canadians is living with hearing loss.
80% don’t even realize it.
Do you ever wonder if everyone else finds it as difficult as you do to follow a conversation in a noisy environment? Do you get frustrated that your spouse speaks so quietly, or mumbles incoherently? Do long meetings or conversations leave you feeling drained?
Even mild hearing loss will cause increased listening effort, which can make life decidedly less enjoyable – not just for you, but for everyone around you. Conversations get shorter, less spontaneous and more to the point. Eventually, they’re avoided almost entirely.
Consciously or not,
hearing loss you might not even know you have can cause you to retreat
ever further from the ones you love. And as you do, your relationships
