How well do you hear? Ask yourself these questions.

Do you need to have the TV, or radio, turned up louder than other people?
Do you have difficulty hearing what is said when there is a lot of background noise?
Do you ask people to repeat themselves?
Do you find it hard to understand what people are saying on the phone?
Do you fail to to hear the doorbell sometimes?
Do you find it difficult to work out which direction sounds are coming from?
Do you find it difficult to hear high pitched sounds, like children’s voices?
And when did you last notice the birds chirping?
Do you miss out on hearing sounds from a distance -  announcements at the train station or shopping mall - or a car or bus getting closer?

What might cause a hearing loss

Being exposed to everyday noises, such as listening to loud music, being in a noisy environment, or using a lawn mower, drilling or other noisy tools, can lead to gradual hearing loss over the years.

More often than not tinnitus (or ringing in the ears) will go along with the hearing loss and may be just as tiring as the hearing loss itself.

Hearing loss can also be caused by earwax buildup, an object in the ear, ear infection, a ruptured eardrum, and other conditions that affect the ear.

What are the actual signs of a hearing loss?

  • Sounds may seem loud enough, but not clear.

  • Quiet sounds such as birdsong or people talking in another room are harder to hear now than they were before.

  • Some voices are easier to hear than others.

  • Talking in groups is getting harder and harder as you become less able to follow what is being said.

  • When you are out and about at meetings, parties and restaurants you often have to ask people to repeat what they have just said.

  • People seem to appear in the room but you haven't heard them enter.

  • Being around traffic you just don't hear the bus or the car coming from behind.

  • Send for a free information pack (opposite) where your options are explained.
