Trouble hearing others? Annoying ear aches? Ringing in your ears? These can be signs that a change has occurred in your ears and that they should be checked.
Why hearing health matters?
Good ear and hearing health is important to people of all ages and helps us to get the
most out of life. When our ability to hear deteriorates it requires more energy for us to
listen and participate in daily life, which can lead to becoming socially isolated as people
find it harder to engage with loved ones.
Whilst it is common for certain people to attend routine health check-ups such as eye and
teeth procedures on a regular basis, our ears are often left forgotten. This should not be
the case. Hearing loss has huge social implications on our quality of life. Hearing loss, if
left untreated, can lead to increased risk of falls, social isolation, and is also known to be
the single largest modifiable risk factor for dementia.
Spotting the signs
