Symptoms of Hearing Loss in Adults

Here's some simple questions to get started

  • Are you finding it harder to understand people when there are other noises in the room?

  • Are you wanting the television volume up that little bit higher than the rest of the family?

  • Have you noticed you are having to ask people to repeat themselves more often than you once did?

  • Do people seem to be mumbling more than they once did?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be experiencing hearing loss.

Hearing loss occurs when the pathway of sound transferring through the intricate workings of our auditory system is interrupted at some point, and it can be difficult to identify because it is usually of gradual onset.

As we age, it is expected that our senses become less sensitive, and hearing is no exception. In fact, the tiny hair cells of our inner ears no longer regenerate after the age of 20.  Our brains are particularly good at acclimatising to gradual change, which is why it can be difficult for us to recognise hearing loss until it becomes quite intrusive.  Often someone close to us may be able to identify it sooner, as it may be impacting on their lives as well.

Research tells us that people delay seeking hearing help for much longer than they should.  Untreated hearing loss results in physical, social, and mental health impacts that are preventable.
