Hearing Care 

Hearing loss often goes unnoticed or untreated

  • People do not realize that their hearing ability has declined.


​Ask yourself the following questions.

If you answer "yes" to 3 or more of these questions, you could have a hearing problem and may need to have your hearing checked by a doctor.

  1. Do you sometimes feel embarrassed when you meet new people because you struggle to hear? 

  2. Do you feel frustrated when talking to members of your family because you have difficulty hearing them?

  3. Do you have difficulty hearing when someone speaks in a whisper?

  4. Do you feel restricted or limited by a hearing problem?

  5. Do you have difficulty hearing when visiting friends, relatives, or neighbors?

  6. Does a hearing problem cause you to attend religious services less often than you would like?

  7. Does a hearing problem cause you to argue with family members?

  8. Do you have trouble hearing the TV or radio at levels that are loud enough for others?

  9. Do you feel that any difficulty with your hearing limits your personal or social life?

  10. Do you have trouble hearing family or friends when you are together in a restaurant?

Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse​
