Self Care for hearing loss

Hearing loss can make life exhausting. Hearing loss extends to all areas of our life: we may not hear the morning alarm clock, that makes us late to an important appointment and we may find social gatherings with friends and family difficult.

When it comes to hearing loss, seeking treatment is the single most important thing you can do. If you have noticed changes in your hearing abilities – such as; sounds are quieter than usual, people tend to mumble more, or you find it difficult to follow conversations. You may need to at this point have a hearing test.

If you have just been diagnosed with a hearing loss and are adjusting to hearing aids, be patient with yourself. The adjustment process can be stressful and overwhelming. With new hearing aids, you will experience access to a larger spectrum of sounds and thus, your brain will need to “re-train” to familiarise itself with these sounds. If you currently use hearing aids for your hearing loss, there may be times in noisy environments when you become overwhelmed.
