Degree of hearing loss

When you lose your eyesight, you lose touch with things. When you lose your hearing, you lose touch with people." - Helen Keller

For most people, hearing loss occurs very slowly over a number of years. Ignoring the signs can ultimately lead to isolation from group outings and social situations, which can affect your wellbeing. However, getting your hearing tested is easy, and there are plenty of discreet options available.

You may have hearing loss if you:

  • Often ask people to repeat themselves
  • Notice many people seem to mumble
  • Have difficulty following conversations when in groups, or where there’s background noise
    (family occasions, meetings, restaurants)
  • Are always turning up the TV or radio
  • Have difficulty understanding people who speak softly, quickly, or people with accents
  • Have difficulty understanding people when they are not facing you
  • Can hear but not understand
  • Have difficulty understanding children and women’s voices

Why acting is so important

Undetected or untreated hearing loss can affect your wellbeing, resulting in you:

  • Either avoiding social situations or dominating conversations
  • Having feelings of low self-esteem
  • Feeling frustrated at difficult communication with family or friends
  • Being accused of selective hearing
  • Feeling tired
