Signs of Hearing Loss

More than 10% of Canadians have hearing impairments.  But for many people, hearing loss is hardly noticed – it takes place over time and is usually identified first by family, friends, or a hearing test.

The first step is to recognize the signs of hearing loss.  If you think you have a hearing impairment, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you often ask others to repeat what they say?
  • Do friends and family express concern about your hearing?
  • Does background noise often make conversations difficult?
  • Do others find the TV or radio is turned up too loud?
  • Do you have a history of noise exposure?

If you or a family member have a suspected hearing loss, seek an audiological evaluation to determine the type, degree, and cause of the hearing impairment. You can make an appointment to see an audiologist at Professional Hearing Services yourself or your primary care physician can refer you directly. Insurance companies recognize that only 20% of all individuals with hearing loss require medical or surgical treatment for their hearing loss, but they require a full audiological evaluation before they will consider funding rehabilitative services. Rehabilitation treatment consists primarily of design, selection and fitting of hearing aids and/or assistive listening devices. These services are provided directly by our audiologists at Professional Hearing Services.
