I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to go all serious on you for a second, as there’s an elephant in the room, and we need to address it…
…Why, oh, why, in 2021, do some people still have a problem with talking about hearing loss?
It’s really not taboo!
As the average American takes between 7-10 years to get their hearing checked out after they’ve noticed a problem for all those years, it really is time to knock this nonsense on its head…
…Thank goodness for “World Hearing Day” on March 3.
Organized by the World Health Organization, this special day has been set up to raise awareness of the importance of not just talking about hearing loss but also making check-ups a much more common practice among Americans.
The stigma of hearing loss can be associated with many things, such as old age, vanity, and even ignorance, but it really is time we put an end to that, don’t you think? And if so, are you willing to help us try to end it?
Do you also agree that hearing aids should be given as much attention as glasses?
So, what can you do right now…
Firstly, you can spread the good word by following us on our Facebook page and sharing our useful information and tips over the coming weeks.
Secondly, you can be the hero everyone needs by encouraging those around you to get a hearing assessment.
Let’s tell those we love that good hearing opens our world to things we may have been missing. Everyone has the right to enjoy the wonders of good hearing, and the good people of Tennessee deserve a trustworthy team of audiologists to help them.
Let’s not let this elephant in the room take up any more space.
