Hearing rehabilitation is designed to help people with hearing loss. The process starts with identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss and then working to counter the psychosocial, communicative and lifestyle effects of hearing loss. As hearing aids have become more advanced, the hearing rehabilitation process has become more technology-driven. With the advances in digital signal processing, tough hitting issues such as background noise, loudness recruitment, and challenging hearing losses can be addressed. Additionally, some people require aural rehabilitation training. Aural rehabilitation is a formal program that helps you learn how to use your remaining hearing to successfully understand the conversation. These programs often result in a higher degree of patient satisfaction and successful performance with their hearing aids.
Hearing loss is often a gradual process leading to difficulty in recognizing the severity of the impairment. Some signs that hearing rehabilitation may benefit you include:
With aging, people may experience cognitive changes in their memory and speed of processing. Almost two-thirds of Americans older than 70 have a meaningful hearing loss. Experts say that older adults with hearing loss are more likely to report periods of poor physical and mental health and to be hospitalized.
