About Hearing Impairments
A hearing impairment is the gradual or sudden loss of your ability to hear. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, hearing impairments affect one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 and half the people over the age of 75. Typical signs of a hearing impairment include difficulty hearing people in crowded, noisy rooms, having to turn up your TV or radio, muffled noises, and ringing in your ears.
Causes of Hearing Impairment
For the elderly, hearing impairments can happen for many different reasons. Sometimes hearing loss is genetic and other times it is caused from years of exposure to loud noise. This type of hearing loss is known as noise-induced hearing loss and typically affects construction workers, farmers, lawn care workers, airport workers, and musicians. Hearing impairments are also caused by strokes, heart conditions, and viral and bacterial infections.
Living with a hearing impairment can be difficult and disheartening, preventing you from socializing and doing the activities you enjoy. Additionally, having a hearing impairment can impact your environmental awareness, making certain activities, like driving, dangerous. If you think you are suffering from a hearing impairment, contact an experienced hearing care provider today.
