Sonus® Hearing Care Professionals Encourage Hearing Loss Screenings, Offer Complimentary Screenings to Public
Minneapolis, MN, May 16, 2013 – One in five Americans experience some form of hearing loss, yet only 13 percent of doctors screen for it. Unlike wearing eyeglasses to treat vision impairments, most people ignore signs and symptoms of hearing loss and are reluctant to seek help, despite the positive effect it may have on their lives. While May is “Better Hearing Month,” every Sonus® Hearing Care Center offers complimentary hearing screenings in an effort to increase the quality of life for those who have hearing loss and reduce the stigma associated it.
“Millions suffer from hearing loss but since it happens gradually, most people don’t recognize the signs and eventually have it pointed out to them by a friend or family member,” said Dr. Thomas J. Tedeschi, Au.D., Vice President, Sonus Business Development.
“If the TV or radio volume keeps getting louder, if your loved one asks for things to be repeated, if you find that he or she is withdrawing from social situations more than before, these could all be signs of hearing loss. Unfortunately, untreated hearing loss can lead to sadness, depression, anxiety, paranoia, and poor social relationships. It is crucial that the signs are not ignored. We are encouraging spouses, companions, and caregivers to bring loved ones in for a complimentary screening if they suspect any hearing loss. The sooner a hearing problem is addressed, the more effectively it can be treated. Having personal support during a screening can be incredibly comforting and helpful—plus people are more likely to follow through with any next steps if they’re not alone,” he added.
Complimentary hearing screenings are available at more than one hundred Sonus locations in the U.S. To make an appointment with a Sonus professional, use the location finder online or call toll-free 1-888-383-4521. To determine how well a loved one hears on a daily basis, caregivers can take a short Sonus questionnaire to decide if a hearing screening is necessary.
