We grandparents don’t want to miss a single word from our grandchildren.
Whether it’s the first words from our precious grandbabies, the joy of birds singing, the tinkling of a mountain stream, conversations, music of all kinds, the dynamic noise of everyday city life – our ears present the great pleasures of life. However, they are also one of our most vital early warning systems, very useful in detecting oncoming traffic and when asleep too, registering a possible break-in downstairs or a saber-tooth tiger entering the tribal cave. Nearly all of us take these every day and extraordinary things for granted, only becoming fully aware of that wonderful and complex organ – the ear – when things appear to go wrong.
As the song goes, “don’t it always seem to go – that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone”. Hearing affects almost every single aspect of our lives. Music, laughter, and conversation – we listen and learn thanks to our ears.
It is not easy admitting that our hearing is not all it used to be. We are usually unaware of it until family and friends point it out. And this is the very moment to do something about it. However, studies show that in the USA people take an average of 7 years after registering the first signs of hearing loss before actually doing something about it. Yet the use of a hearing aid could have significantly improved the quality of life and health over that period.
Hearing loss can be gradual and subtle just as it can be with eyesight. But there is one big difference – there is no stigma attached to wearing glasses!
