So, even though July is in full swing, unfortunately, your social calendars might not be.
But as Utah slows down further for a summer of canceled festivals and outdoor events, it’s a good time to reflect on the things that actually make us happy in life.
Music may very well be one of those things, but, when hearing loss gatecrashes the party, it can be very difficult to accept.
One person who knows this all too well is the much-loved ‘80s rock icon Huey Lewis from Huey Lewis and the News, as he has recently discussed his struggles with Meniere’s disease.
If you’re not aware of what Meniere’s disease is, it’s a rather uncomfortable combination of tinnitus, vertigo, and hearing loss symptoms, which can be rather debilitating.
Luckily for Huey, he was smart and sought out treatment right away, which could be his savior. (You can read the full article here.)
Anyway, whether you’re a fan of the “Power of Love” singer or not, his open discussion about his hearing problems has shown some much-needed light on the topic, which we couldn’t be happier about.
Couple that with the news at the beginning of the year that American Girl released a doll with a hearing loss, and other celebs, such as Halle Berry and Barbra Streisand, came forward about their hearing-related problems, it’s safe to say that the world is opening up, and we’re here for it!
So, if you or a loved one has had trouble with your hearing or hearing aids lately, don’t suffer in silence, “do a Huey” and let us help you sort it.
Should you wish to make an appointment with us, we would be delighted to see you! You can either call us at (801) 657-4175 or click here to schedule a Tele Audiology appointment.
It’s Time to Talk
It’s wonderful when someone with a platform spreads awareness of hearing loss.
But in fact, anyone who has received the right treatment can make a huge difference among those who have hearing concerns.
Unfortunately, many people don’t talk about hearing loss and don’t seek help, especially those in younger age groups.
As it turns out, a lot of hearing loss sufferers are in their teens. So, it’s important, now more than ever, that we educate and spread the word about how to look after ourselves.
If just one person in your network sees something that encourages them to get help, then that would be a massive achievement. A quiet chat can make all the difference.
Once they receive their first hearing test and speak to one of the specialists, they’ll be forever grateful that you spoke up.
Contact the team now if you or someone else close to you needs hearing care assistance!
