Hearing Loss

About Hearing Loss

For most people hearing loss happens very slowly over time. You might start to miss the odd word or think someone said one thing when they actually said something else. Your brain is quite clever and is able to guess what has been said but with a hearing loss it sometimes gets it wrong.

You may have to turn the TV up louder than your family would like and even then it is not clear. Most people suffer from a lack of clarity not volume so it can be quite frustrating for all the family if someone is missing words. This will happen to all of us at some point so there is no need to worry.

Book a hearing test as soon as you can and find out what, if anything, you need to do about it!

What are the warning signs that you may need a hearing test?

Important Questions:

Is the TV louder than others find comfortable?
Does it sound like people are mumbling or not pronouncing their words properly?
Are you missing what friends, family or grandchildren are saying to you?
Are you or your loved one avoiding noisy social situations or missing jokes?

At the theatre, restaurants, and social gatherings; these can be particularly difficult due to distance and background noise. This becomes very embarrassing if you have to ask people to repeat again and again.

It is almost like listening to a foreign language and it is not much fun missing out on the punch-line of a joke when everyone else is laughing. Most people smile politely and then ask someone else what was said later.

Feeling tired and stressed is common because trying to hear with a hearing loss takes a lot of concentration. Some just withdraw completely as it is too difficult. This stress is bad for your health and your loved ones if they have to repeat themselves regularly.

It could affect those who suffer from any heart or blood pressure conditions etc. It can also lead to depression and social anxiety which can reduce quality of life and cause arguments in your relationships.

Tinnitus treatment

Are you experiencing a sudden ringing or buzzing sensation in your ears, even when there is no sound source present in the vicinity? Chances are you're suffering from tinnitus. The medical profession is yet to fully understand the primary cause behind this issue that affects about 10 percent of the UK adult population. Hearing loss, exposure to loud noise, stress and anxiety are some issues that are associated with it.
As of now, there is no scientifically proven cure for tinnitus. But hearing aids are known to reduce the stress related with it.
"I was recently fitted for hearing aids. Although sadly it has become less commonplace to provide positive feedback, I would like to make a special mention regarding Gabriel Karrouze - the audiologist who provided me with such an excellent service and I am delighted to provide a testimonial on his behalf.
It is refreshing to deal with someone who is courteous and professional and above all, knowledgeable. From the initial consultation (for which he travelled a considerable distance to fit in with my schedule), through to final adjustments and fitting, Gabriel followed through on every single one of his promises, maintained regular contact to keep me updated and consistently presented in a professional, positive and friendly manner.

Having worked for over 25 years in a service industry myself, I appreciate and understand the benefits of such good customer service.

I believe Gabriel to be a credit to this company and will highly recommend him to my colleagues and friends."
