Why should I buy hearing aids?
It is nearly impossible to put a price on the missed conversations and connections with your spouse, family, friends and colleagues.
With an untreated hearing loss, you potentially miss out on some of the beautiful and important sounds of life: the laughter of your grandchildren, cheerful birdsong, raindrops falling softly outside your window, your doorbell, the car’s turn signal and the timer on your oven.
Also, untreated hearing loss is linked to other health conditions such as dementia, depression1 and increased risk of trips and falls2. Getting hearing aids can give you an overall improvement in your health and quality of life.
