Unprotected ears can be harmed by prolonged exposure to loud noises, such as lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners, and loud music concerts. There are numerous reasons for hearing loss, however; and it is not uncommon for senior citizens in particular to lose their sense of hearing.
Many of our residents at Aston Gardens retirement communities in Florida have faced this struggle. Fortunately, there are solutions and effective ways to deal with hearing loss.
The most common cause of hearing loss is advanced age, and researchers don’t yet understand why. In the age group 65 thru 74, one in three people have experienced hearing loss on some level. In the age group 75 and above, one of every two people have some noticeable hearing loss.
Loss of hearing is a common malady that affects people of all ages. Hearing is a complex function that involves the ability of both ears to detect sounds along with the ability of the brain to interpret those sounds. There are varying degrees of negative impact that hearing loss can have on a person, determined by the following factors and more:
Hearing often fades slowly, and the process can occur without notice. Many people assume their hearing is fine, as long as they hear sounds. One of the earliest stages of hearing loss is that high-pitched sounds, such as the voices of children and females, become more difficult to decipher. The following are more symptoms of hearing loss:
Treatment for hearing loss varies, depending on the cause of the condition. If infection is the cause, antibiotics may provide the cure. Surgery can sometimes reverse hearing loss in some instances, such as when hearing loss is caused by scar tissue, otosclerosis, or infection.
The majority of people who have suffered permanent hearing loss can benefit from the use of hearing aids. These tiny instruments are typically worn in or behind your ears, and they amplify sounds.
Hearing loss ranges from mild to profound. At all levels, it helps for a person to adjust to changes while seeking the best solutions. Many at Aston Gardens retirement communities in Florida have faced loss of hearing. It can help to realize that your dilemma is common among peers.
