Happy Hearing during the festive season.

Posted by on 21 December 2017

 

The festive season is often a great time to catch up with family and friends at home, restaurants, BBQ’s and parties.  For many people with hearing loss these get-togethers can be challenging situations.  Here are some tips for better hearing during the festive season.
Position yourself in the quietest area in the room, away from kitchen, loud speakers etc
If the music is too loud, consider asking the host if it can be turned down a little
Find a seat at the centre of a dinner table so that you are positioned to better hear everyone
If you have hearing aids, wear them. You may think that with so much noise that hearing aids won’t work, but most of today’s hearing aids are advanced and can selectively enhance the speech and reduce the noise.  This is not to say that the place will not be noisy, it just means you will experience a similar level of noise as everyone else. 
Contact us to learn more about advanced hearing aids and how they can help you hear well.

Hearing and Communication.

Posted by on 7 December 2017

With the holiday season coming fast, family and friends get together. There are lots of conversations while eating, shopping, working doing chores and having fun. In essence there’s lots of communication. 
Have you ever thought about what impact hearing loss has on communication? What do you think the impact is? We would love to see your comments. 
If you are worried about your hearing please have your hearing tested. If you think someone is suffering from a hearing loss, maybe all they need is a little encouragement to have their hearing tested.

Hearing Loss and Dementia...

Posted by on 1 December 2017

MAC clinicians recently attended a seminar on hearing loss and dementia as part of our continuing professional development.  We learnt the latest on how treating hearing loss can reduce cognitive decline.
Cognitive decline is a series of symptoms that affect memory, thinking, behaviour and social activities.  When these become severe enough to interfere with daily living and independent function it is called dementia.  A major cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease but there are other causes too. 
Dementia is the biggest cause of disability in older Australians and hearing loss affects over 60% of people over 65 of age. There is a link between hearing loss and dementia and research showing that treating hearing loss with hearing aids can reduce cognitive decline.
Social engagement, participation in activities, stimulating your brain and ongoing learning may offer some protection against cognitive decline. To be able to do all these things having good hearing is vital. 
For people with hearing loss, the earlier that hearing loss is treated the better. Research shows that someone with a severe hearing loss is five times more likely to develop dementia.  
In a nutshell, to protect against cognitive decline and dementia, social engagement and stimulating the brain are vital. For people with hearing loss, well fitted hearing aids are crucial as they enable participation socially, at home and at work.
 
If you or someone you know is withdrawing from social activities, feeling depressed or feeling fatigued because of hearing loss, we strongly recommend doing something about it.  The first step is to contact us for a hearing assessment appointment.
