People with hearing loss often delay a decision to obtain help because they are unaware that receiving early treatment for hearing loss can potentially transform their lives. Research has shown that hearing aids are associated with improvements in the social, emotional, psychological, and physical well-being of people with hearing loss of all types and degrees. Hearing aid usage is positively related to earning power, communication in personal and professional relationships, ease in communication, emotions, sense of control over life events, perception of mental functioning, group social participation, and overall physical health. And, if you start earlier it's an easier transition.
