Looking For Hearing test?Looking For Hearing Aids?

Hearing is something that a lot of people take for granted. Being able to hear a phone ring or birds chirp are things we don’t usually give a second thought to.

However, for somebody suffering from hearing loss, not being able to hear everyday sounds can be incredibly isolating.

Why hearing loss occurs?

Hearing loss, like many other health-related matters, can occur at any stage of life, for a number of different reasons. In some cases, hearing loss is inherited (see: genetic hearing loss) and doesn’t present itself until later on in life. For other people, it can appear earlier and may be heightened by exposure to loud noises, head injuries, illnesses or certain medications.

Why it’s important to take the test

Hearing tests should be a routine process throughout your life – just as you would check your eyes or your teeth. Hearing loss can come on gradually, over long periods of time, so it’s easy for our brains to adapt to quietening sounds or people speaking more softly.

This, unfortunately, means it can be hard to know whether or not you’re suffering from hearing loss until it starts to impact your quality of life.

Taking a hearing test early on can save a lot of future frustration such as loss of connection to your loved ones. Also recent research has found a strong link to untreated hearing loss and dementia, loss of balance, reduced memory and depression, just to mention a few.

In our daily life it is also about creating less conflict with your loved one and colleagues. Hearing clearly enables you to communicate well and confidently, creating a bond and real connection with the people that matter to you.

If you love your family you should consider giving them the gift of your hearing, so you can all reconnect on a higher level. It’s all about connecting with people, and if you strip it all down, it is all about love.

And you don’t have to be a senior citizen to have hearing loss – although you are more likely to suffer hearing impairment if you are over 70. Did you know that 75% of All Australians with a hearing loss are younger than 65 years of age. You are very likely to have friends that have a hearing loss, some untreated and some that have invisible hearing aids that no one knows about.

No matter your age, if you think you have hearing loss, you’ve come to the right place.

Hearing impairment is socially debilitating, but it doesn’t have to be. Modern hearing aids can improve your quality of life, help you reconnect with your loved ones and bring back the life you once had. We are particularly passionate about invisible hearing aids, so no-one but you will know you are wearing one.

I am too young to have hearing loss… but I’m struggling

The realisation of hearing loss at any age can be potentially devastating. This can be further amplified if the person is younger than traditionally expected, i.e. under 60. If this is you, then here are a few things you need to know:

 

  1. Hearing loss can happen at any age, and often, mild hearing loss starts in early forties.
  2.  Environmental factors such as exposure to noise, through the type of job you have or listening to loud music, can damage your hearing.
  3.  Exposure to toxins, including side effects of some medication can also damage your hearing.
  4.  Hearing loss is linked to dementia and early intervention may also prevent dementia.
  5.  Clunky and large hearing aids are a thing of the past. Luckily, today’s modern technology has come a long way and hearing aids these days are small (often invisible) and no one has to know that you are wearing them. New technology also allows seamless integration into a variety of devices (mobile phones, music players etc) through Bluetooth ®. We are particularly passionate about invisible hearing aids and have several options on offer.
  6.  You can take our online hearing test in the privacy of your own home to help you determine if you have hearing loss.
  7.  We offer free hearing tests at Health & Hearing that are also obligation free, no pressure. Call us on 07 3152 4056 to arrange an appointment or click here to email us.
  8.  We are proud to be independent, which means we work hard to find the best treatments from the full range of available solutions, including tinnitus management, rehabilitation, counselling, and hearing aids from all leading manufacturers.

How do you we test your hearing?

During your free 30 minute consultation with us, we will check your ear canals and conduct a hearing baseline measurement. This involves measuring the intensity (decibels) and frequency (hertz) of the sounds you can and can’t hear and at what thresholds.

We’ll then categorise your results as either mild, moderate, severe or profound hearing loss (don’t worry, we’ll explain these to you in more detail when we see you). We will also be able to recommend what actions you should take from here on.

We pride ourselves with not being pushy or hard selling. We value Kindness and Respect, you will see that come through loud and clear if you decide to visit us. Want some proof of that? Just visit our website and click on ‘Testimonials’ tab, and you will hear it from dozens of our clients.

Need more information? Feel free to give us a call on (07) 3152 4056.
