Just by answering a series of important questions truthfully, you may find that you are beginning to experience a level of hearing loss. The Better Hearing organization offers a free, quick and confidential Online Hearing Check. You can easily take the test in the privacy of your own home or even at work (share it, too).
Test results may indicate you need a more comprehensive hearing test by a hearing care professional – such as a board-certified Audiologist. At The Hearing Center located within Jacksonville Hearing & Balance Institute, our Audiologists help you understand the facts and myths about hearing loss, so you can make your own decision as to what to do next.
Useful information on hearing loss and innovative hearing aid technologies are available on www.betterhearing.org, as well as on www.JHBI.org and www.BetterHearingJax.com. Instead of putting off recognizing and finding out a possible level of hearing loss, once you take the first step, you will likely find an increase in your quality of life.
Addressing any hearing loss early can make a difference in your life. Take the time to find out – you’ll find it worth the effort. It’s a known fact that some people take an average of seven years before they realize they have had a level of hearing loss. When there is mild hearing loss and it’s addressed, usually the person’s quality of life is enhanced. Even if hearing loss results in the need for a hearing aid, people get more pleasure out of life and doing things that are engaging once again.
So, “take the test” – see how you do, and if you need the professionals at The Hearing Center at JHBI, just give us a call. We’re here for you!
