No matter their age, having your parents in your life is a blessing. For Gen X and Millennials, whose parents are ageing, this is even more so.
However, this blessing can sometimes come with uncomfortable conversations with your parents about unpopular topics such as when it’s time to stop driving or living independently, or when it’s time to get that second medical opinion, or when it’s time to get a hearing aid to improve communication.
If you really think about it, people with blurry vision wouldn’t dream of going without a good pair of prescription specs. Our hearing, however, seems to be a different story.
Studies have shown that when hearing loss is ignored, it can hasten cognitive decline. Not being able to hear means your parents will have a harder time connecting with others which leads to social isolation, feelings of helplessness, and low mood. Even your own interactions with your folks may become strained due to their hearing loss, and this is no way to spend your precious time together.
Hearing loss affects approximately 500 million people worldwide and it is a common health problem among adults 50 years or older. The problem though is that not many people realise that their hearing is deteriorating until it is too late. This is exactly why going for a hearing screening is important for your loved ones!
Hearing tests measure how loud a sound needs to be for an individual to hear it and how clear the sound is. Through this, a person can determine whether they would need a hearing aid to help improve their quality of life or not.
For many adults past the age of 50, hearing aids can be a life-changer not just for them but also for the people around them. While seniors may feel cautious about looking old, at the end of the day – they’ll soon realise that hearing aids are a gift for anyone they interact with.
Now, before you say that hearing aids are bulky and ugly, just know that hearing aids have evolved into intricate communication systems that are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. Most hearing aids now incorporate a range of different technologies and features that will help people reconnect with the world around them.
