I am embarrassed about my hearing loss.

My Daughter is getting married next year and I am embarrassed about my hearing loss. I really want to do something about it. 

We recently got a message from a man concerned about his hearing loss. He informed us that his daughter was getting married in 5 months time and that he has really noticed that his hearing has declined. He informed us that he often has to ask someone to repeat what they’ve said and sometimes he does not respond when someone speaks to him.

Due to this, he is staying at home more frequently and is skipping his weekly round of golf with his friends. He is really concerned that he will struggle to communicate with everyone at the wedding, especially as the night goes on and there is music playing. He understands that he needs to consult with an audiologist but is feeling a little lost on how to take the first step.

Hearing loss can be overwhelming.

Firstly, it is important to recognise that dealing with hearing loss can be extremely overwhelming. It can feel like you are losing a sense of self as you start to struggle with everyday social interactions. Hearing loss can lead to mental strain or what we refer to as ‘brain drain’. The act of keeping up with a conversation could suddenly become much more difficult and so we often see people who begin to avoid socialising as it becomes a draining task.

Support is key.

The best thing that you can do when suffering with a hearing loss is to seek support from a loved one however you might need it. This can reduce the stress around socialising or seeking professional advice. At Walker Hearing Clinic, we understand that accepting your hearing loss can be daunting. We strive to create a welcoming and relaxed environment where we actively guide our patients through the entire process from consultation, to hearing tests to choosing hearing aids if required.

With ever-changing technology, hearing aids are more accessible and more discreet than ever. We offer a wide range of options at Walker Hearing Clinics from the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers.
