It is estimated that one in six people of the population in the UK have a hearing loss and people fail to address the problem on average for up to ten years. That figure equates to 10 million people having a hearing loss, approximately 6.4 million are of retirement age and 3.6 million are of working age.
2 million people wear hearing aids
Just 2 million people wear hearing aids but only 1.4 million use them regularly. Around 6.7 million people could benefit from hearing correction.
Don't ignore your hearing loss
By addressing a hearing loss early you ensure ongoing stimulation of the cognitive functions, allowing the brain to keep engaged, maintaining good memory and communication skills, therefore continuing with an active and full lifestyle.
Have an annual hearing test
Our hearing health should be equally as important as eye checks, dental checks and hearing checks and should become the norm from a very early age. We at Help in Hearing advise that hearing tests should be carried out regularly from early childhood through to our senior years.
