The effects of hearing loss go well beyond the ears: it's been shown to impact your mood, mental health, relationships and more. The good news? People who wear hearing aids report significant improvements in many aspects of their life:
Social Life and Relationships
- Better communication
- More positive, satisfying relationships
- Higher social engagement and enjoyment
While hearing loss can lead to loneliness, relationship strain and social isolation, hearing aids can help you actively engage in the world and those around you. By improving speech recognition and comprehension, hearing aids bring back more joy, laughter and intimacy in relationships.
Job Performance and Salary
- Higher income
- Improved job performance
- Better relationships with colleagues
Untreated hearing loss can negatively impact your job performance and salary. Fortunately, wearing hearing aids can help you remain productive and keep your career on track. You’ll also enhance your relationships with coworkers.
- Improves cognitive functioning
- Preserves brain tissue and nerve cells
- May reduce risk of dementia
Multiple studies have shown that when compared to those with untreated hearing loss, hearing aid wearers perform significantly better on tests that measure memory, learning and decision-making skills. Hearing aids also keep you socially active and engaged—two key factors to staying mentally sharp as you age.
Mental and Emotional Wellbeing
- Happier, calmer living
- Reduced depression + anxiety
- Increased confidence + optimism
Hearing aids have been shown to significantly reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, frustration and anger. And it’s not just the hearing aid wearer that notices improvement: family members observe these positive changes, too. The result? Happier living and happier relationships with those you love.
