Hearing impairment can make people feel like they’re missing out on conversations, social situations, professional opportunities, their favorite music and television shows, and more. Additionaly, untreated hearing loss has also been linked to a variety of serious health conditions and risks, including increased depression, loneliness, cognitive decline, dementia, diabetes, fall risk, and more.
- The average time from when someone first suspects they have hearing loss to when they seek evaluation and treatment is seven years.
- Although many valuable treatments for hearing loss exist, only 16% of individuals aged 20–69 and 30% aged 70+ that could benefit from hearing aids actually pursue them.
Make sure that your customers and prospects don’t add to these troubling numbers! Emphasize that if they have hearing loss, getting hearing aids will be a game-changer, improving all aspects of their social, emotional, mental, and physical well-being!
