You still need to wear your hearing aids!
Everyone is experiencing increased stress and difficulty due to COVID-19. That does not mean that you don’t need your hearing aids any more. Many of my patients have told me that they aren’t wearing their hearing aids now because there isn’t anything to hear. Even if you are home alone, there are always things to hear. We know that your brain works better when you hear well. Hearing loss is a leading cause of dementia and makes you 40% more likely to fall. Hearing aids also reduce tinnitus for most individuals.
Face Masks also can cause hearing difficulty. We can help you with this.
Your brain is still working and there are things to hear (some very good things), so you need your hearing aids. We are all working to get through this difficult time. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.
