A loss of hearing isn't just something that happens as you age. Hearing loss is a serious condition that can affect the way you communicate with others, impact your social life, your memory, your confidence and deeply affect your emotional state.
Hearing loss is a medical condition that can affect the outer, middle and inner parts of the ear and the central auditory pathway. As with any other medical condition, it should be treated by a professional.
Age UK Hearing Aids understand that people have different symptoms and circumstances related to their personal hearing loss, and that numerous factors can contribute to a decline in a person's ability to hear clearly.
Understanding what part of your hearing is affected; the causes of it and finding the best solution can be a huge challenge. The path to better hearing isn't and should never be a solitary one. Hearing loss can be frustrating at best; isolating at worst.
You're not alone; over 10 million people* in the UK suffer from some form of hearing loss. UK Hearing Care's specialist team of independent hearing experts are able to offer people suffering from hearing loss a personalised level of care, attention and key assessments to determine what stage of hearing loss you're at, how it affects your livelihood and – most importantly – what can be done to improve your hearing.
