Hearing Loss is Very Sneaky!!!
Hearing loss is usually a gradual change that develops over the course of a few years. Many people with hearing loss initially think others are mumbling or not speaking clearly over the phone, when, in reality, their hearing acuity has started to decrease. It is important that these signs are recognized early, as the prognosis for early intervention for hearing loss is very good. Properly identified and treated hearing loss can lead to slowing down or stopping the progression of further hearing loss, as well as a much better quality of life!
