Hearing loss can gradually sneak up on you, and if you’re not looking for them, the signs are easy to miss but will become hard to ignore. Initially it may start out as asking your boss to repeat that last direction. Perhaps you are hesitant to visit your favorite restaurant with your spouse because you simply can’t enjoy the conversation. Or asking your friend to repeat the punchline of the joke that everyone else seems to be laughing at! Well hearing loss is no laughing matter, and at Meridian Hearing, we are very excited to share our expertise with you on the subject of hearing loss and identify how we can bring comfort back in to your life.
As a Patient Service Coordinator with Meridian Hearing, I have a large portion of my contact with patients over the telephone and I have observed a number of things;
- Most of the complaints and appointment requests come from the spouse and family members that struggle to have “normal” communication
- Telephone conversations tend to be very loud and distorted causing both parties to potentially miss out on information
- Verbal communication is very short and abrupt which can lead to unnecessary isolation or a fear of the telephone to avoid being embarrassed
You don’t have to be afraid of hearing loss or taking the steps to determine if a hearing aid is the right decision for you and your family.
The first step is to book your complimentary hearing assessment with one of our qualified Audiologists and let us educate you on your level of hearing loss. Together we will work with you to find the best hearing amplification for your needs and bring you back to your comfortable lifestyle! We look forward to hearing from you!
