HEARING loss is considered a form of impairment and if left untreated leads to negative social, psychological and cognitive health effects. Each can have far-reaching implications that go well beyond hearing alone. In fact, those who have difficulty hearing can experience such distorted and incomplete communication that it seriously impacts their professional and personal lives, at times leading to isolation and withdrawal.

This further leads to disruptive patterns and depression. A history of smoking, binge drinking, and poorer health status are associated with both hearing loss and depression. Researchers found that individuals with hearing loss were up to five times more likely to develop dementia, based on the severity of their hearing loss.

At Wholesale Hearing Aids we focus on fitting the right technology affordably. We have resilient and user friendly devices which fit a broad range of hearing loss.
