Hearing loss impairs your social life
Good hearing is health, so it is important to protect our hearing. Alfonso Sánchez, Director and Audiologist at Sontec Hearing Centers, talks about the problems that people with hearing loss may encounter in their social life and how to solve them.
How hearing loss affects social life
As Alfonso Sanchez explains, hearing can affect the way you go about your day, interact with family, friends and colleagues.
If the hearing loss is treated and therefore the social barriers are removed, as these people with hearing loss isolate themselves from the environment simply because they cannot hold a simple conversation.
Recognizing the possibility of hearing limitations and seeking early medical attention is critical to effective management of hearing loss.
Untreated hearing loss can have a negative impact on your social life, reduce quality of life and lead to distress and/or cognitive impairment such as dementia and other diseases.
We recall that poor hearing is an obstacle to communicating with others and enjoying social life.
The importance of early care
In childhood it is much more important, it is when we begin to talk, to have conversations, in short, to start an active social life. Therefore, it is even more important for children as it affects their personal and social education and language development, so you should be especially sensitive to them.
That is why Alfonso Sanchez told us that one of the experiences that impressed him the most, with one of his patients.
He always had a deep feeling, even with emotion, of being able to be part of the growth and development of that little boy who crossed the door of his cabinet a few years ago and that he could play a role in life, be able to learn like his peers, play without being isolated from others, enjoy the sounds around him and most importantly, his environment can communicate with him without problems. The boy today is a 22 year old boy who studies Teaching at the University of Malaga without any difficulty.
Professional help: how family and hearing loss are essential to quality of life
Hearing loss is often related to age. For this reason, at Sontec Hearing Centers we recommend hearing tests after the age of 50, especially if there is a family history of hearing loss. However, we must pay close attention to the youngest children at home, if they start talking later, or ask to turn the television louder. A simple hearing test can solve problems in the future.
The independent hearing health clinics in Fuengirola and La Cala de Mijas treat all hearing related problems with professional, personalised attention and state-of-the-art technology. They also offer an excellent after-sales service for the service and maintenance of hearing aids.
"We know how stressful life can be for people with hearing loss and how it affects all their family and friends. That's why we take a personalised approach to each case, providing them with the latest hearing technology to help them hear better. Clear and accurate. Even in noisy environments," says Alfonso Sanchez, the company's chief audiologist.
As part of our working method, the centre offers a free in-depth hearing assessment, on the basis of which they will recommend the best solution according to individual needs.
When it comes to hearing aids, SONTEC works with several leading global manufacturers, including Gn Resound, Phonak, Oticon, Signia and Rexton, to name a few.
We also collaborate with the AndalusianRegional Government and the Andalusian Health Service, as well as with several organisations in the UK.
