At the Canadian Hearing Institute, our team is invested in the hearing of Ridgetown residents, providing the essential hearing tests in a timely fashion.
A hearing test or ‘audiometric test’, is a clinical test essential to evaluation of a person’s hearing capability. Our goal is to bring back the sounds of day-to-day life, so that you can hear clearly. We know the quality of your hearing has a direct impact on the quality of your life, and we understand the importance of providing accurate hearing tests to determine the extent of your hearing loss.
Is there a noticeable change in what you can hear? Do you find yourself asking others to repeat themselves? Do you often need to turn up the TV or radio volume?
Hearing loss often happens so gradually that it frequently goes unnoticed. There are many Ridgetown residents who are suffering from the insidious effects of hearing loss in denial. They often don’t recognise when they have stopped communicating and withdraw from family, friends and social situations, the cause may be inability to understand what others are saying. We are happy to assess your degree of hearing ability with our complimentary hearing tests for residents of Ridgetown. When your hearing test has been evaluated, we can develop an appropriate treatment plan suitable to your lifestyle, needs, and budget details.
We know that hearing loss can greatly affect a child’s ability to develop language, communication, and social skills. It’s important to have children with hearing loss evaluated early, to increase their ability to reach full potential. As a parent, if you suspect your child may be suffering from hearing loss, we advise you to trust your instinct and schedule a vital hearing test with us at your earliest convenience.
“Hearing loss affects about 15% of the population,” says Ted Dalios. “It 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”.
