Hearing Loss
There are several types of hearing loss some of which are medically or surgically treatable. Typically, those who benefit from hearing aids, are those with nonmedically/surgically treated permanent hearing loss.  Permanent hearing loss is usually due to damage to the hair cells (hearing nerve endings in the inner ear).  The more damage to the haircells, the more difficult it is to hear.

As a result of Haircell damage/nerve damage it may appear like people mumble or don’t speak up. When conversation becomes hard to hear, people may change their behaviors to avoid confronting their perceived hearing challenges. If you are reading this booklet, most likely you or a loved one is experiencing difficulty hearing.  Take a moment to reflect.
