Treat Your Hearing Loss—and Your Relationships

Wed, 02/08/2012 - 16:31 -- shauru

If you knew you could improve your relationship with a loved one, wouldn’t you? As Professor Dr. Martin Ohlmeier, a specialist in neurology, psychiatry and psychotherapy puts it, “Relatives rightly have a claim to be able, and be allowed, to communicate with their partner or family member. In practice, it is not uncommon for conflict to arise when the relatives can no longer put into practice what is necessary to maintain the relationship they have been used to sharing. To put it another way: the partner has a right to an acceptable level of communication in the relationship.”*

If your spouse and children are consistently acting as your interpreters, or find themselves constantly repeating themselves, you might experience strains on your relationship. Because of this, treating even minor hearing loss can make a major difference. In a recent survey** of family members of people who wear Lyric hearing devices, the benefits of treating hearing loss were abundantly clear:

• 96% of respondents indicated that Lyric helped them better communicate with the wearer
• 64% credited Lyric with an improvement in their relationship with the wearer
• 94% said they would recommend Lyric hearing aids to other family members.

A recent Hear-the-World study only reinforced our findings. In their study, 41% of respondents whose relatives already have a hearing aid confirmed that getting the hearing device directly improved their own lives, not just the life of the wearer.

If you’ve been putting off treating your hearing loss because it doesn’t seem significant, consider how improving your hearing can improve your relationships with loved ones. Taking a first step toward finding a hearing solution can say that you care. Express your love by showing your desire to listen and communicate.
