Starting on the hearing health care journey can be quite an emotional experience. It is often difficult for a person to realise that their hearing is failing. Hearing levels usually deteriorate over a period of time and it is other people who notice the difficulties first. Family members might notice that the television is a bit too loud or that the person is starting to sit apart from a conversation at the dinner table.
Hearing loss is often misunderstood. Many people with hearing loss hear well in some situations and with some people. Hearing loss is not usually an all or nothing situation. It is rare for a person to hear nothing; usually they lose the clarity of hearing. Sometimes a hearing impaired person will hear a lot but they will get things mixed up. Hearing impaired people sometimes get odd looks from other people because they have not understood what is being said and they have made a completely inappropriate comment!
It is difficult for the person with the hearing loss to move along the journey to better communication until a hearing test has been done and the results explained. The earlier a hearing loss is detected the better it is so that the hearing impaired person does not start isolating themselves from the outside world.
