Hearing loss can affect us all in different ways – no two peoples experiences of hearing difficulties will be the same. Some people are born with impared hearing. Some find their hearing gradually deteriorates as they get older. For some, hearing loss can be sudden and quite shocking. Some people can experience strange noises like a persistant hum or buzz.
Just as when people experience visual loss, hearing loss can lead to emotional upset and loss of self confidence as people struggle to communicate and stay connected with the world around them. Embarassment and low self esteem can act as a barrier to getting help – this is why we feel its’s important to have someone to talk to about concerns regarding hearing problems who can listen and give objective advice to help them reconnect with the world.
