Many times when asked what I do for a living, I get a feeling that the person I’m talking to has no idea of what an Audiologist can do.
Yes, we help people with hearing and balance. We educate on ear protection and provide relief for those with tinnitus.
But I believe, Audiologists do so much more.
An Audiologist improves the quality of one’s life. An Audiologist prevents social isolation. Participation in social activities actually increases lifespan.
An Audiologist can help to reduce the risk of falling. We can help to decrease the number of hospitalizations and readmissions. There’s plenty of research to support this.
An Audiologist can help prevent cognitive decline. A hearing loss that is left untreated causes harm.
An Audiologist is someone who wants to help you age gracefully. We want you to be connected to those who love you and keep you on your feet, living life and enjoying what’s around you.
An Audiologist is waiting to meet you. Don’t delay in seeing one. What are you waiting for?
