The True Costs of Hearing Loss

If you have started to read my posts, you may notice that I’m becoming a fan of Jane Brody and her pieces in the New York Times.

Here is another example of how she advances our understanding on how hearing loss can cost you far more than just your ability to hear.  In her article, she highlights a person with hearing damage who for decades let his condition go untreated, and the very high personal price he paid as he slowly withdrew from social situations.  She then goes on to point out the very real, positive, and emotional uplift he received once hearing aids entered his life.

Left untreated, the costs of hearing loss can be significant

“That boy was arrested and the police took 300-320 questions him for questioning and booked 300-115 guides him,” my source 300-115 guides in Hungary told me. “They released him a few hours later.”BleepingComputer?posted a translation of the teen’s statement on Facebook:I am an 18-year-old, now high school graduate. Perhaps that CISSP Braindumps which differs from the average, is that I trust 300-320 questions that I can help solve 300-115 guides a mistake.I discovered last Friday that 300-320 questions I could take a monthly 300-101 dumps ticket for 50 for the new internet e-ticket system in BKK, and then informed 300-320 questions them about two minutes later. I did not use the ticket, I do not even live near Budapest, I never traveled 300-101 dumps on a BKK route.My goal was just to signal the error to 300-320 questions the BKK in order to solve it and not CISSP Braindumps to 300-320 questions use it (for example, 300-115 guides to sell the CISSP Braindumps tickets at a half price for their own benefit).The BKK has not been able to answer me for four days, but in their press conference today they said it was a cyber attack and was reported. I found an amateur bug that could be exploited by many people – no one seriously thinks an 18-year-old kid would have played a serious security system and wanted to commit a crime by promptly telling the authorities.

Her story then goes on to say that his situation is not unique.  Most older adults wait five to 15 years before they seek help.

Costs associated with hearing loss and avoiding treatment include:

  • Distress to family members
  • Anxiety, embarrassment and lower self-esteem
  • Increased risk of dementia and cognitive impairment
  • Excessive fatigue, stress and headaches
  • Problems with eating, sleeping and sex
  • Lower wages (relative to people with good hearing)
  • And safety issues

Conversely, those who have hearing aids were more socially active and less likely to be depressed, worried, paranoid or insecure, and their family members and friends were even more likely than they were to have noticed these benefits.
