Providing Exceptional Service
We are committed to providing exceptional service from the initial screening for hearing loss to a full examination. An initial screening will provide you with a baseline hearing level while a full examination will pinpoint the effects your hearing loss has on speech and overall communication.
When does hearing loss begin?
Hearing loss affects 3 million Canadians, but only one in six of the hearing impaired wear hearing aids.
Statistically we all start to lose our hearing when we are in our 40s. One adult in five and more than half of all people over the age of 80 suffer from hearing loss. However, more than half of the hearing impaired population are of working age.
Hearing loss not only affects the person losing their hearing but their friends and family as well. Hearing loss often starts with missing the S, T, or K sounds in speech and it may sound as if others are mumbling. While this may seem like a rather small thing, it raises frustration levels and can have a large impact on overall communication.
