9 Myths about Hearing Loss

Hearing loss

As it is not always obvious when people have hearing loss, and it is not often discussed,  hearing loss is often referred to as an “invisible disability,”

  • Only 1 in 5 people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually use one.
  • People with hearing loss may wait up to 10 years before they do something about it.
