How a Hearing Aid impacts on Social Life
A hearing aid can help people hear more in both quiet and noisy situations. With the advanced technology and tools of improved hearing care in the Philippines, one’s social life can be as rich and clear as the sound that a hearing aid brings. Get yours from our Manila Hearing Aid MANILA branches and start living the life that you envision.
What Can a Hearing Aid Do to One’s Social Life?
A Hearing Aid is More than Meets the Ear
A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes some sounds louder so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities.
However, not so many would know how far a hearing aid can actually impact one’s social life until they read the story below.
A TRUE STORY
A Simple Case made Complicated?
A friend phones to invite you for dinner with a group of old friends, and you suddenly got excited with the idea of seeing them.
But, instantly, your pessimism starts to kick in. You know it will be noisy. From your previous experiences in that room, even with all your concentration, it will be difficult to understand what’s being said — especially that one friend with his very soft baritone voice.
Whenever there is a sudden outburst of laughter, you’ll pretend to understand the joke and smile, but you’ll have little clue what was so funny.
Ultimately, you’ll resort to leaning back and giving up, becoming more of a “non-player character” than an active participant in the dynamic discussions.
Then a headache will creep in from all your mental effort, and you’ll feel alone among what are truly good friends. “No thanks, but I can’t that night,” you hear yourself say as you come up with a quick excuse to the invitation.
Soon, many of the friendships start to fade and the invitations become less frequent. You find yourself doing more solitary things and convincing yourself that it’s better to watch TV or read a good book than endure hearing loss. Frustrations start to sink in.
Hearing Aid Fitting
The story above was lifted from The Hearing Review as it narrates hearing loss as a social problem. It is a poignant description of a person who could have avoided this situation if only she had been fitted with a hearing aid.
Come to think of it, a hearing aid price shouldn’t be an issue here as there are far more important things that are at stake. In this case, the patient’s happiness is front and center.
