Hearing loss frequently goes unnoticed and because it happens gradually, many people are in denial. They often stop communicating and withdraw from family, friends and social situations because they can’t understand what is being said. Here are some common signs of hearing loss:

  • speaking louder than necessary in conversation
  • constantly asking for words to be repeated
  • straining to hear
  • misunderstanding conversations, especially in noisy situations
  • favouring one ear
  • thinking that people always mumble
  • turning the television or radio up louder than usual
  • having difficulty hearing on the telephone
  • withdrawing from social contact
  • ringing or buzzing in one or both ears
  • appearing dull and disinterested, slow to respond, or just not quite “with it”

If you are experiencing any of these signs of hearing loss, contact CHS to make an appointment for a hearing test.
