Did you know that hearing loss is one of the most common conditions that adults experience as we age?

Mother’s Day with Marilyn

by | Mar 26, 2024 | Patient Resources

Creating memories together requires effort and action: from organizing a meal, decorating a room, to even booking travel to a new destination, the memories and bonds that are made because of the actions we take make us feel good as we learn and experience new things.

But when we don’t hear well, we tend to not participate in these activities.

Instead, people who are hard of hearing or are struggling with hearing loss choose not to do certain activities because it becomes rather difficult and uncomfortable for them. Feeling isolated in conversations and missing directions is frustrating, and it’s overall saddening to feel left out.

Just recently, I had my mother in for a hearing test. It was the first time that she really understood the work we do because she had never experienced it. She left our clinic feeling more confident than ever, thanks to a quick hearing test that helped her rejoin the conversations she was missing.

If you’re reading this and considering hearing healthcare for you or a loved one like your own mother, you’re in the right place.

Hearing Loss in Adults across Canada

Did you know that hearing loss is one of the most common conditions that adults experience as we age?

According to a report done by Statistics Canada in 2022, approximately 60% of adults have a degree of hearing loss. Of these people, about 30% of them experience tinnitus and hearing loss at the same time – a significant number when you think about the aging baby boomer population, which is the largest senior population that has ever been.

So, to put things into real numbers since the 2022 census, there are approximately 10 million people (about half the population of New York) who are 60 years old or older out of nearly 40 million – meaning 6 million of these people have some degree of hearing loss, whether mild, moderate or severe.

I have been serving this age demographic for nearly 20 years, and I can confidently say that there are too many people who haven’t had a comprehensive hearing assessment before, or even considered getting help for their hearing loss.

The good news? Hearing loss is easily treatable, and most people do well with the simplest of solutions.

This Mother’s Day, I’m offering an open invitation to you to book a complimentary hearing assessment. It is a quick and easy process, and at the end of it, you will have a new experience and knowledge about how you are hearing.

My advice? Don’t wait to have a hearing test. Delaying hearing care for too long can lead to other health complications later down the road. You don’t need a doctor’s referral, but you do need to make a phone call.

Who knows, it might just be your next best conversation.
