May is Speech and Hearing Awareness Month
For Immediate Release
Hearing Solutions recognizes Speech and Hearing Awareness Month by encouraging people to get their hearing tested
Toronto, ON – Hearing Solutions, a leading provider of hearing healthcare, audiology services and hearing devices in the Greater Toronto area, is encouraging people to ensure healthy hearing by getting a hearing test. According to a report published last year by Canada’s Public Health Agency, more than 30 percent of Canadians over the age of 65 have some sort of hearing loss. More than 50 percent of those Canadians have sensorineural hearing loss; the most common form of hearing loss among adults. With the population also showing signs of hearing loss at a younger age, including those in their 40’s, it has become more important than ever to ensure better hearing health.
That is why Hearing Solutions is particularly encouraging people who feel they may not be hearing everything they should to get a hearing test. Since hearing loss can go undiagnosed for some time and in many cases, until it becomes a serious obstacle to communication, it can often lead to withdrawal from social situations, isolation from friends and family, reduced productivity at work, stress, reduced alertness, an increased risk to personal safety, and even depression.
Studies have shown that hearing aid use by individuals with even mild hearing loss is beneficial, allowing them to improve job performance, increase their earning potential and prevent depression. Hearing Solutions understands that improved hearing health is not simply about hearing things better, it is ultimately about achieving an increased quality of life. Hearing Solutions’ experienced team of Audiologists and Hearing Instrument Practitioners, supported by a team of dedicated Hearing Healthcare professionals, harness the latest state-of-the-art hearing assessment equipment, along with expert knowledge on the newest hearing aid technology, providing each client with personalized care.
According to Hearing Solutions President, Ron Abish, “we believe that superior hearing healthcare is about finding the best fit for your individual needs, budget, and lifestyle.” With 11 clinics, including our newest location at Albion Centre, we encourage people to come in for a free hearing test. You can also go to our website at www.hearingsolutions.ca to take our online hearing evaluation or request a free hearing aid information kit.
Hearing Solutions is sound advice you can trust.
