Hello again!

Dr. Lyndon Ear here, with the September edition of your newsletter.

OK, confession time…

Hands up if you’ve ever argued with your spouse or child about the volume of the TV.

Yep, I thought as much. It’s so annoying, isn’t it? You want it at one volume, and they want it at another.

Well, if I were to tell you there’s a very simple solution, would you want to hear it? Of course, you would. Here is it…

INTRODUCING THE TV STREAMER:
​SELECTOR OF VOLUMES, MEDIATOR OF ARGUMENTS!

A TV streamer is a brilliant solution for those times where one person feels the sound is too loud, while the other feels it’s too low, as it gives the person with the hearing aid total control.

This is because the TV streamer sends a TV’s audio output directly to your hearing aids and gives you a personal set of controls to decide the amount of sound you want to hear.

All the major manufacturers – from Oticon to ReSound – offer their own TV streamers, and if you want to avoid arguments over volume, then we can help you there!

Just find your nearest office here, and give us a call; we’ll happily tell you all you need to know and get you set up.

How Hearing Treatment Can Prevent Dementia

Twenty-eight leading experts have suggested that cases of dementia in America could be reduced by 40 percent if the general public addresses 12 key risk factors.

High on their list is encouraging people to protect their ears in high-stress environments and seeking treatments when someone first notices hearing loss symptoms.

Studies show that your hearing is crucial in how your brain processes information.

As a result, researchers believe that hearing loss stops your brain from functioning perfectly, reducing your overall cognitive capacity.

Social isolation, often a side effect of untreated hearing loss, may add to this problem.

If you know someone who has a concern, contact the team about a comprehensive hearing assessment – the best way to diagnose an issue.
