04 Jan New Year's Resolutions for Better Hearing
With a new year we have some suggestions for a year filled with better hearing!
Hearing loss, like any other health related issue, should not be ignored. Many people simply don’t remember to include a hearing evaluation as part of their regular health check-ups. Research has shown that many of the negative effects of hearing loss, including depression, anxiety and withdrawal from many social gatherings, can significantly affect individuals, families, care workers and often co-workers. Hearing loss is experienced by 1 in 10 Canadians of all ages and is the 3rd most common health concern after heart disease and diabetes. By age 40 a hearing test should be part of our health and wellness check-ups.
