Communication is the key to all human activities. It is necessary for learning, exchanging information, and generally taking care of each other. Advancements in hearing instrument technology have made a huge impact in the way people with hearing loss can function today.
The cause for your hearing loss may range from simple wax blockage to complex nerve damage.
What are the primary categories of hearing loss?

What are the effects of untreated hearing loss?
Successful hearing instrument users are those who are motivated to improve their communication by improving their listening and hearing. They have worked with their Audiologist to learn what they can expect from hearing instruments and understanding what they can and cannot do. They also have family support.
