Using hearing aids improves the quality of life in most cases and reduces the negative impact of hearing loss.
The rapid improvements when hearing aids are introduced is well documented. Typically, hearing impaired patients get their first hearing aids when they recognise that their hearing has deteriorated or when their family keeps telling them that they have to have something done about their hearing.
