Frequently Asked Questions About Hearing Aids and Hearing loss by Family Members Like YOU
When should I encourage my loved one to visit an audiologist on the South Shore?
Johns Hopkins Medicine recommends that you have at least one baseline hearing test in your adult life, and especially if you are over the age of 65. The American Speech, Language, & Hearing Association states that adults should be screened at least every decade through age 50 and at 3-year intervals thereafter. If your family member or loved one is like most adults, they may have had their last hearing test in grade school.
If they are experiencing any signs of hearing loss such as trouble hearing on the phone, difficulty understanding speech in a restaurant, frequently asking people to repeat themselves then you should encourage your family member to visit an audiologist for a hearing test. Dr. Powis will provide you with an audiogram. She will plot your loved one’s test results on the audiogram and these results will be reviewed by you. Dr. Powis recommends that you attend the appointment with your family member so you can get all your questions answered directly. If your loved one’s audiogram demonstrates that they have hearing loss, Dr. Powis may recommend further testing.
Can my family member put off hearing aids and hearing loss treatment?
Putting off hearing aids and hearing loss treatment when necessary can lead to increased risk of things like dementia, depression, and decreased cognition. Research has proven time and time again that those individuals that are proactive about their hearing healthcare age with more grace. Timely hearing loss treatment is most effective for achieving the best results.
