The Benefits of Hearing Gain
Good hearing results in positive health outcomes, increases social engagement, improves communication, and lowers the risk of depression.
After reviewing the consequences of hearing loss, it is apparent that quality of life can decrease when the sense of hearing is impaired. However, it is also important to understand how much can be gained when hearing health is present.
- It is said that communication is the foundation of relationships. Good hearing health eliminates the frustration of missing out on conversations and being isolated from social situations.
- Hearing health is also thought to have positive benefits on brain functioning, such as memory, as well as other physical health benefits.
- Good hearing creates independence and security. When you’re able to hear your fire alarm, a doorbell ring, or an emergency vehicle on the road behind you, you are able to be aware of your surroundings and stay safer when alone.
