After the age of 60, 54% of us have some kind of hearing loss which increases to more than 75% after the age of 75. However your hearing can change at any time in life.
In most cases, hearing loss occurs gradually. It is painless and invisible and the deterioration is so gradual, it can go virtually unnoticed to the point where it appears ‘normal’ – but it’s not. Too many people wait far too long before seeking help with their loss of hearing. Living life to the fullest includes regularly checking on your hearing health.
Hearing requirements change with time so, even if you have had a hearing test in the past or already wear a hearing device, it is advisable to arrange a checkup every twelve months.
