Helping You Hear is our Privilege
Posted by Living Sounds
To help people hear and communicate is an incredible privilege. The one thing we notice at Living Sounds is that people are reluctant to get their hearing tested because of fear that there may in fact be a hearing loss, and they may require hearing aids. Bill Gates said that he is “a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they’re interested in.” This perfectly applies to hearing aids. Such a small device can have such a huge impact on a person; the results can be life-changing!
“I don’t know why I waited so long”
“I feel more aware”
“I am not asking people to repeat themselves”
“My work and relationships are improving”
“I am more engaged and active”
“People don’t even see my hearing aids”
“I am so happy to hear again!”
These are some of the things Hearing Aid Practitioners and Audiologists are told regularly, and they are what motivate us to keep coming back. Helping people to hear is our way of adding value to our communities. When a person hears better and learns communication strategies, it allows them to be more engaged in the community. When we communicate better we have better relationships with those around us – happiness is contagious!
