#HearingFactFriday: Health experts think more people should be wearing hearing aids

Many Americans have hearing loss. Estimates range from 37.5 million up to 44 million of us — and that’s only adults. That works out to be about one in every six adults. Yet a big percentage of them with hearing loss let it go untreated, despite research showing links between untreated hearing loss and increased risk of falls, depression, hospitalizations and even dementia.

On the other hand, treating hearing loss with hearing aids is proven to minimize those risks, reduce hearing-loss-related cognitive decline, and provide a host of other benefits like improved earning power, increased confidence and social participation, better relationships, and better overall quality of life.

If you’ve got hearing loss but don’t wear hearing aids, see what actual hearing aid wearers are saying.

Or, better yet, try the hearing aid that was just named a TIME Best Invention of 2019 and experience the difference for yourself. Call 1-888-908-1845 or click here to schedule a 30-day, risk-free demonstration.
