Many scientific studies have confirmed the negative impacts associated with hearing loss: depression, anxiety and social isolation. There are positive impacts associated with hearing solutions, as well. In one study of more than 2,000 hearing aid users, participants reported several improvements in over several different quality-of-life areas, including:
- Increased Feelings of Control Over Life Events
When overcoming reliance on others to understand what is going on in the hearing world, individuals with hearing loss will regain their sense of control.
- Improved Emotional Well-Being
- Individuals who treat their hearing loss report improvements in emotional well-being and general mental health.
- Increased Social Interactions
Improved communication leads to a boost in confidence and more social activities with friends and family, including more connection in romantic relationships.
- Improved Physical Health
Individuals who treat their hearing loss report fewer incidents of falls and a better sense of balance, along with other physical health improvements.
