Communication Wellness Matters
When we think about healthy habits, the focus is typically on physical or mental wellness. With 10’s of millions of Americans having varying degrees of hearing loss, as well as it being associated with an aging population, our society should be more intently focused on Communication Wellness.
While, generally speaking, we know physical wellness relates to exercise and mental wellness to state of mind, there must be greater awareness about how healthy hearing is integral to a highly functional and happy life. Whether face to face, on the phone or via web-based methods such as Zoom or Skype, the ability to communicate effectively is essential. Further, as healthcare consumers, we need optimal ability to have and understand complex medical dialogue. How can we make crucial decisions and follow care instructions if they cannot be clearly understood?
In the spirit of Better Hearing is Better Community, we should celebrate the beauty of precious sounds, pleasant conversations and phone or web-based personal connections. Just as we seek expert care from cardiologists for heart disease or oncologists for cancer, highly trained audiologists are dedicated to helping you experience the joy of hearing.
While advanced hearing devices provide the platform, our personalized solutions are the method. With noisy environments and challenging listening situations common, our specialized ability to guide patients in successfully navigating them is essential. Our precise testing enables us to determine the type and degree of hearing loss, from which we can make fact-based recommendations on which technological features will provide you optimal daily benefits.
In addition, as hearing loss relates closely to other medical conditions such as diabetes, vision loss, dementia and the risk of falls, we will play a vital role in coordinating best practices care with your other healthcare providers.
As we educate our patients about Communication Wellness, we also encourage they and their loved ones to consider the hidden costs of hearing loss. For your easy reference, please see this informative reference:
