The team at House of Hearing feels privileged to serve communities right across Utah. The difference they make to people’s lives is a constant source of inspiration.

But unfortunately, not everyone seeks help as soon as they can.

Unlike when someone catches a cold, where the symptoms are apparent, only specialists can diagnose hearing loss in its early stages.

As it’s Hearing Health Awareness Month, we felt it was important to reflect upon why you should treat a concern seriously.

Higher quality of life

When you treat a hearing loss prior to it worsening, you’ll preserve this key sense for as long as possible.

Although you can receive excellent treatment at any stage, there’s less risk of a hearing loss becoming significant when treated rapidly.

In addition, hearing loss isn’t something that affects just one individual.

It’s a condition that loved ones and friends also witness on a day-to-day basis, and this can lead to stress and arguments without treatment.

A partnership for life

When you or a loved one decide to place your trust in the specialists at House of Hearing, you’ll be embarking on a lifelong partnership.

Exceptional hearing care isn’t something you can pick up in a grocery store.

Instead, it emerges in the bond between yourself and a professional doctor of audiology over a number of years.

Those that decide to embark on this journey with House of Hearing will benefit from a medical model of treatment that we have available.

Most centers simply prescribe hearing aids. But our team of specialists also comprises of highly experienced ENT physicians who can treat a range of conditions.

It’s part of the reason why so many people recommend us to others – they can find solutions to all their needs under one roof.

Prevention is key

Although it’s crucial to act rapidly if you experience the first signs of a hearing loss, the best way to combat an issue is to prevent it from occurring in the first place.

The team at House of Hearing works hard to educate patients on the reasons why they might have experienced a hearing loss.

The most common arises from people experiencing noises above a safe level.

Teens and young people are particularly susceptible, as sounds get harsher at concerts and sports events.

Scientists at John Hopkins University have suggested more will be at risk in the future.

The best advice the team can offer is to wear adequate hearing protection. Once your auditory system is permanently damaged, it cannot return to normal.
