Do I need hearing aids?
You might have noticed some signs that your hearing has changed. Maybe you have begun turning the volume on the TV up higher than usual or having to ask people to repeat themselves more often.
These can be signs that your hearing has gotten worse, and you might need a hearing aid. If that is the case, you are far from alone. More than 65 % of adults above the age of 60 experience some degree of hearing loss.* The first step can be reaching out to a hearing care specialist near you who will be able to help you treat your hearing loss.
