Hearing aid wearers indicate that their hearing aids not only improve their hearing, but their overall health and quality of life. According to the data published by EuroTrak UK, 71% of wearers wish that they had started wearing their aids sooner, as they now realize how much they have missed out on.
The survey collected answers from more than 1,300 hearing impaired individuals, 698 of whom owned hearing aids. It has found out that hearing aid wearers had better quality of sleep, improved life quality, and were less likely to be teased about their hearing loss. They are also less likely to develop symptoms of depression and to feel mentally and physically worn out in the evenings.
The survey also finds that 85% of hearing aid wearers think their aids work better than they initially expected. 87% of wearers state that their hearing aids are useful in their place of employment, and they also believe that they contribute to their chance of being promoted and getting a higher salary.
The survey serves as a great encouragement for those who are interested in getting hearing aids, but have not done so yet. If you’d like to get your hearing tested at no cost, just give us a call at (877) 426-0687 today!
