Understanding Hearing Loss...

 

We know that the key problem arising for people who acquire a hearing loss is the impact on communication and the loss of social connectivity.

Understanding Hearing Loss
Mind Your Hearing

From the moment we wake up in the morning to the time we go to sleep at night, sound and communication play a central role in our lives. Communication keeps us socially connected to family, friends, work colleagues and society.

But, especially as we get older, many of us begin to experience hearing problems which can impact on our communication with others. At DeafHear we have many years of experience supporting people who are socially isolated due to deafness and hearing loss.

We know that the key problem arising for people who acquire a hearing loss is the impact on communication and the loss of social connectivity.

If you are a medical card holder, contact your local HSE Health Centre, as you are entitled to a free audiology service, including hearing aids, if required.
