Have you ever wondered why older people are more likely to be isolated than their younger counterparts? It could be any number of reasons, but often the culprit is hearing loss. Older individuals who find they cannot hear have a tendency to withdraw because they are unable to converse or otherwise interact with others. They embrace a life of silence because they cannot hear and they don’t want to talk.
As hearing loss specialists, we want to remind our readers that silence is no answer to hearing problems. Not only does living in silence not help anything, it only leads to isolation and loneliness. The good news is that silence is not your only option.
New Hearing Aid Technologies Are Great
It used to be that hearing aid technologies only worked for certain people suffering from a specific kind of hearing loss. All they did was increase volume. As much as that helped some, it didn’t help others whose hearing loss had more to do with distinguishing between sounds than a lack of volume. New technologies have changed that.
There are now different kinds of hearing aids for different kinds of hearing problems. Don’t just assume a hearing aid will not help you without trying one first. It could be that modern digital technology has a solution that could restore your hearing sufficiently enough to allow you to lead the kind of life you used to lead.
Silence is no answer to hearing loss. Don’t allow a loss of hearing to take you into a place of silent isolation where you cannot hear and you are unwilling to speak.
