Did you know that 6.3 million people over the age of 65 have some degree of hearing loss – that’s two thirds of the UK’s over 65 population!*
Hearing loss is a natural part of ageing, it happens so gradually you might not even realise that you have a problem – but your family will. It might be simple things like turning up the TV, or not hearing the telephone ring. You’ll only be able to ignore it for so long until it starts affecting your everyday life.
These days, taking care of your hearing really is as simple as a check up at the dentist or a visit to the optician. If you give your hearing the same care and attention that you give your sight you’ll never miss out on your favourite TV programme or the sound of your grandchildren again.
Small and discreet
And if vanity is stopping you then think again. The latest digital devices are now so small and discreet most people will never know you’re wearing one. And with clearer sound than ever before, you’ll be able to improve your hearing without feeling self-conscious.
The only thing your family and friends will notice is your improved hearing. Make a start today – whether you visit your local GP or go to a private hearing aid specialist, such as Amplifon, hearing assessments are free – why not call them on 0800 022 33 77. They’ll test your hearing and recommend the best solution for you.
So why be one of over 4 million people that could benefit from a hearing aid, and don’t?
