One reason an individual might not want to admit or acknowledge their hearing loss is because they think hearing loss is somehow shameful or embarrassing. It is important to let them know that hearing loss is actually quite common. One out of every five individuals suffers with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high chances that you know at least one individual who has some hearing impairment.
We are an audiology & hearing aid centre based in Nairobi, we encourage each one of you with a hearing impaired relative during this festive season as family and friends gather for warm conversation, laughter and exchanging gifts, the best gift of all this holiday season might not come wrapped in shining paper and adorned with a bow; it might just be the gift of hearing.
If you have a loved one with untreated hearing loss, you are most likely all too familiar with the challenges hearing loss presents.
