Your Hearing

Life is Too Short Not to Hear Your Best

Hearing strengthens relationships with friends and family, enhances music, improves TV and movies, and makes activities more immersive and enjoyable.

Losing our hearing can deprive us of important connections, make us feel isolated and alone, and prevent us from living the rich and full life we deserve.

Life is too short not to hear the best you can. Let us help make sure you always do.

The Hearing Journey — Five Steps to Better Hearing

Most people who have hearing loss aren’t born with it. Instead, hearing loss gradually decreases over time, usually caused by exposure to loud noises, aging, or some combination of the two.

And unlike vision impairment — which we fix as soon as it becomes a problem — too often we push off treating hearing loss. One obvious factor is the impact of each impairment. Driving, reading, watching TV and working at a computer are difficult when our vision is compromised. Most people cope with or work around hearing issues — at least in the short term.

Eventually, hearing loss starts to affect our lives. A decision has to be made to look into it. This is when the hearing journey officially begins.

Step 1: Test Your Hearing

If you show one or more of these signs, you should get your hearing tested:

  • Being told by others that you have hearing loss
  • Frequently asking others to repeat themselves
  • Turning the TV to a volume others find loud
  • Having trouble understanding conversations in noisy places
  • Difficulty hearing women and children’s voices
  • Feeling like others are mumbling
  • Avoiding social situations that were once enjoyable

You can test your hearing by scheduling a comprehensive hearing test with us — to get a precise and accurate measurement of your hearing.

Step 2: You're Not Alone

If it turns out you have hearing loss, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Hearing loss is the fastest growing, and one of the most prevalent, chronic conditions facing Canadians today. Millions of people have hearing loss, including approximately 60% of adults1

Step 3: Know the Effects of Hearing Loss

Many people ignore hearing loss because they think they can live with it or the consequences aren’t that bad. But years of research show otherwise. Untreated hearing loss has been proven to impact our physical and mental health and, ultimately, our quality of life.

The growing list of issues linked to hearing loss include:

  • Relationship issues
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Social isolation
  • Depression
  • Cognitive decline and dementia
  • Tinnitus
  • And more

Step 4: Seek Hearing Loss Treatment

Don’t wait until hearing loss leads to bigger, irreversible issues. Treat it as soon as possible. Start treatment by making an appointment with us. We have the experience and equipment needed to perform a thorough and proper audiological evaluation, then can prescribe the solution and treatment protocol that best achieves your unique needs.

"If you want to address hearing loss well, do it sooner rather than later … before brain structural changes take place."

Step 5: Hear Better!

We hear all the time from the people who we help that they “wish they had done this sooner!” and we’re confident you’ll feel the same way.

The simple step of treating your hearing loss can make you more connected and informed, safe and engaged, confident and independent. 

Simply put, it changes people’s lives — and it can change yours, too!
