Springtime helps to raise awareness about the significance of hearing healthcare. May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, which makes it a great time to have your hearing evaluated to identify if you are suffering from hearing loss. For millions of Americans, this time of year has increased their awareness of the importance of hearing, how to protect it, and how to improve it.
Hearing loss can affect people of all ages. That’s why it’s important to see an audiologist at the first signs of hearing loss, no matter what stage you are in. When ignored, hearing loss can have a major impact on both your social and professional life.
“It’s what keeps us connected to those around us, and involved in the relationships that are important to us,” said Dr. Laura Day-Moran, doctor of Audiology at Harbor, when talking about the importance of hearing health.
Hearing health normally changes gradually over time. Because of this, your brain makes adjustments to accommodate your hearing loss so you may not notice the change taking place. That’s why it is important to have your hearing checked regularly, even if you don’t rely on hearing devices. If you do use hearing aids, the professionals at Harbor can check them and make sure your devices are in tune so your hearing is always at its best.
“At Harbor Audiology, we are passionate about what we do. We have the privilege of helping people hear better, hear better in their world and connect to those important relationships,” said Dr. Day-Moran. “For us, it’s an honor to be a part of your hearing health care.”
