    Why should you get your hearing checked?

    As we age, our bodies undergo various changes, and our senses are no exception. One sense that often experiences decline is our hearing. Untreated hearing loss can have significant impacts on our overall well-being and quality of life.

    Early identification of hearing loss is important for timely intervention and treatment. By scheduling a free hearing assessment at the earliest opportunity, you can identify any potential hearing loss early on. This allows you to take proactive steps to address it.

    • According to a survey conducted by YouGov, 40% of people report better conversations after addressing their hearing loss. By actively participating in conversations and engaging with others, you can foster meaningful relationships, reduce feelings of loneliness, and improve your overall well-being in the process.
    • Another 33% felt more connected to their family. By having your hearing checked and addressing any hearing loss, you regain the ability to fully participate in family events, and conversations and actively contribute to shared experiences. This strengthens the bonds within your family unit, creates cherished memories, and reinforces a sense of belonging and togetherness.

    “All kinds of research shows that people who get amplification earlier are more successful with hearing aids later on. Loving your ears means being proactive, getting your hearing checked, and if there is a problem identified, treating it at its earliest stages and not waiting until it's a significant problem in your life,”
    Dr Jillian Price - Chief Audiologist, HearingLife Canada

    Why personalized hearing care at HearingLife makes all the difference

    Imagine buying a pair of shoes without knowing your exact size. They might look nice, but they’ll probably end up being uncomfortable and might not help you as much as they should. The same goes for hearing care.

    Non-personalized hearing care is like those ill-fitting shoes. It often involves generic hearing aids given without thorough assessments, which may not address your specific hearing challenges.

    When you walk into a HearingLife clinic, our team makes sure to provide the following:

    What to expect at your hearing test?

    The best possible treatment is simple and easy. There are three steps to start:

    1. A hearing assessment – You sit restfully in a noise-controlled environment wearing a comfortable set of headphones. You will be asked to press a button in response to a series of tones. Your responses will help us know the exact state of your hearing health. The test will last about an hour.
    2. An examination – Once we have quantified your hearing health, one of our hearing care professionals will examine your ears. The examination is painless and will help us determine possible causes if there is hearing loss (e.g. wax build up, infection).
    3. An interview – This is the most important step in the process. Our hearing care professional will ask you about how your hearing health has affected you. It’s a simple conversation that will yield the final pieces needed to make the perfect recommendation to fit your needs.

    You and your loved ones also receive advice on how to best communicate in different everyday situations, both with and without a hearing aid.

    What happens after the test if you have hearing loss?

    If hearing loss is detected, your hearing care professional will provide assistance in choosing the best hearing aid solution for you. Once you've made your selection, you could be wearing your new hearing aids in less than a week (custom hearing aids can take 2-3 weeks).
