Currently, one in six Australians has some form of hearing loss. With an ageing population, this statistic is predicted to increase to one in four people by 2050.
The likelihood of experiencing hearing loss increases as we age; about 60 per cent of people aged over 60 have some form of hearing loss. Because age-related hearing loss occurs gradually, it’s common for people to be unaware their hearing is diminishing.
When to get a hearing check
- Do you have trouble understanding people unless they are facing you?
- Do friends complain that your TV is too loud?
- Do you find it hard to hear on the telephone?
- Do you have difficulty following conversations in noisy environments?
