Hearing loss has an impact on adults at both a societal and personal level. This can lead to depression, social isolation, challenges in employment and a loss of independence. Many individuals are affected, and their social and professional activities become limited. One out of every six individuals in the United Kingdom suffer from some type of hearing loss. Many are older individuals whose hearing was lost gradually due to the process of aging. Over seventy percent of individuals experiencing hearing loss are above the age of seventy. Forty percent of all individuals above the age of fifty are experiencing some type of hearing loss. This happens so gradually, it takes most individuals time to first recognize, and then accept that they are experiencing an issue.
There are a lot of ways to determine if an individual is being affected by a loss of hearing. This includes:
• The voices of others appear mumbled
• The television is too loud for others
• Hearing is difficult in noisy surroundings
• Difficulty hearing the phone or doorbell
• The need to have people repeat what they have said
• Difficulty understanding if not looking right at the person speaking
