What Self-Isolation Means For Those With Hearing Loss

What Self-Isolation Means For Those With Hearing Loss

If you or a loved one suffers from hearing loss, you will be aware of how isolated hearing loss can make one feel.

Meeting your friends for a coffee is supposed to lift your spirits, be fun, and the opportunity for some company. But imagine how you can be made to feel when you can’t quite hear that juicy bit of gossip, or everyone bar you is laughing at a joke you couldn’t quite hear.

These are the challenges facing hearing loss sufferers every day until they decide to take matters into their own hands and get prescribed hearing aids (and it takes the average person 10 years to get around to doing this!).

Now, lets think about how these already isolated people are going to feel if they go into self-isolation due to Corona Virus, either through choice or on medical grounds.

In this case, the only way of maintaining contact with the outside world, friends and family, will be by watching tv or listening to the radio, or chatting on the phone.

Suddenly, your hearing and ability to hear becomes so vitally important.

So, if you’ve been thinking about booking a hearing test, or been meaning to get around to getting your hearing aids repaired or adjusted, call us on 0800 3134304.
