Hearing Aids and Your Lifestyle

Your lifestyle is very important when choosing the right hearing aid. To get the most out of your appointment, you should consider the environments you are in that are most affected by your hearing loss. When you consider your lifestyle and personal needs, it will be easier to determine the best hearing aid(s) for you.

There are several lifestyle types but there are a few to consider that may apply to your life;

  • A quiet lifestyle where you find yourself spending most of your days in a quiet environment. Your communication is limited between 1-2 other people in a quiet room. You may talk on the telephone or watch TV most days.
  • A moderately active lifestyle incorporates the quiet lifestyle, but you get out sometimes and encounter busier environments such as the grocery store, the bank or a quiet restaurant (3-4 people sitting around your table).
  • An active lifestyle involves many different environments so you may find yourself attending events with large groups of people or crowded events or go to busy restaurants.
  • Or, maybe you experience a combination of these lifestyles.

When determining what hearing aid is best for you, it is very important to consider how your hearing aid will enhance your experiences. We want your hearing aid to fit in seamlessly with your lifestyle.

Hearing Loss and Brain Health

Hearing and Social Settings

Untreated hearing loss can quickly alter your relationships with your spouse, family, friends, and coworkers. You may often ask people to repeat themselves or talk louder, which can lead to frustration for all involved. As hearing loss progresses, you might even find yourself avoiding social situations, especially in loud settings, to prevent problems with hearing and understanding conversation.

Hearing and Balance

Your balance and gait can also be affected by hearing loss. When you walk, your ears pick up subtle cues that help with balance but hearing loss mutes these important signals and makes your brain work harder just to process sound. Most people don’t realize their intuitive multitasking may be interfering with their mental processing needed to walk safely.

Hearing Aids and the Brain

Honestly, there is no downside to using hearing aids, especially when it comes to supporting your hearing and brain health. Hearing aids enhance your ability to hear sounds that were lost due to hearing loss, helping to restore that cognitive activity that is crucial to maintaining your brain health. But hearing aid users wait, on average, 10 years before getting help for hearing loss and during that time, their brain hearing, or auditory pathway suffers and health risks increase.

A lot of people who wait too long tend to feel cognitive fatigue once they start using hearing aids after a prolonged time of hearing loss because their brain isn’t used to having to process normal sounds that most people are used to.

Hearing loss can become increasingly more serious over time, so it is important to prioritize your hearing health the same way you do visual or oral health. If you think you have hearing loss or if a loved one has hearing loss, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We can perform a hearing evaluation, go over your needs and any concerns you may have. It is our top priority to help you understand your specific hearing condition and guide you to the best possible solution.
