#HearingFactFriday: Wearing hearing aids can improve relationships

Hearing aid wearers regularly reach out to us to share stories of why they got Starkey hearing aids and how wearing them has changed their lives. George G. from Pennsylvania emailed us and said “After being fitted with a pair of Starkey hearing aids, a whole new hearing world opened up.” And Teresa R. from Missouri simply wrote, “Starkey hearing aids gave me back my life.”

It’s not a surprise, then, when research and studies back up the good things we hear.

One such study, from The National Council on the Aging (NCOA), did just that. In their survey of 2,300 hearing impaired adults age 50 and older, hearing aid users reported “significant improvements in many areas of their lives, ranging from their relationships at home and sense of independence to their social life and their sex life.”

If you have hearing loss and are wondering if hearing aids will help, both research and regular people say yes! Maybe Dolores B. from California said it best, “I wished I had gone to the hearing specialist much sooner.”
