For many of you, this may be your first step towards addressing your hearing impairment or that of a loved one. Although there are many causes of hearing impairment, the incidence of the condition grows steadily as people age. While 30% of adults will be showing signs of hearing loss by the age of 50 years, this will rise to 70% of the population by 70 years-of-age.
Hearing loss affects lives, lifestyles, relationships, and often leads to feelings of isolation. International studies have shown that when not managed, the condition reduces the effectiveness of people in the workplace and leads to decreased household income. Even more importantly, people who address their hearing loss earlier report feeling younger, more confident, and eager to once again enjoy the social situations that had become tedious. These findings are consistent with the experiences of the hundreds of clients who House of Hearing have helped over the years to achieve better hearing and a better quality of life.
Thankfully the New Zealand government recognises the impact hearing impairment has on people’s lives and the economy. Subsequently, the cost of hearing aids are subsidised under a range of schemes, which provides greater access to hearing solutions.
The staff at House of Hearing will find you the best treatments from the full range of available solutions, including tinnitus management, rehabilitation, counselling, and hearing aids from all leading manufacturers.
We are here to help you at every step of the way and find a solution that works for you. If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a hearing test or trial of the latest digital hearing aids, please don’t hesitate to call or book an appointment online.
